Hi friends!

Welcome to my little corner of Al Gore’s Internet. I’m Jareesa - I’m a scientist, a freelance writer, a knitter, wife to LM, mom to #BabyPi, and more. I love Queen Bey, squishy yarn, watching GBBO, and attempting to bake. Sometimes I rant, sometimes I rave, but I always tell the truth.

Rock The Red Pump And Know Your Status

Today is National Women and Girls HIV/AIDS Awareness Day. I hope that everyone, both male & female, uses this day as a reminder and a challenge. A reminder that your life is in your hands - knowing your status and practicing safe sex every time is the key to remaining HIV-free. A challenge to get involved in some way - raise money, volunteer, educate others.

The Red Pump Project is an amazing project that is raising awareness about the impact of HIV/AIDS on girls and women. Please check out their blog to learn more about their activities, learn more about how HIV/AIDS affects girls and women, and what you can do to get involved.

Do you know your status? If you don't, today is a great day to find out. Knowledge is power.
