Did you even know there was such a day as National HIV Testing Day? Admittedly, Bag Ladies didn't know either prior to a couple of months ago and that coupled with finding out that there are an estimated 400,000 individuals within the United States that are infected with HIV and not aware of it left Bag Ladies speechless and that's tough to do with us. The numbers are staggering and even more unnerving is the fact that HIV/AIDS is the leading cause of death amongst African American women ages 25 - 34. When considering our target audience, we (Bag Ladies), knew we had to do something to raise awareness regarding HIV/AIDS and further promote National HIV Testing Day.

Starting Monday, June 22nd, Bag Ladies is broadcasting a weeklong special edition show series covering not only relationhips, sex and dating but also safety, prevention and protection. The series will run through June 27th. Nationally recognized guests include Demetria L. Lucas, Finesse Mitchell and Will Downing to name a few. And to further celebrate the cause and our efforts, Bag Ladies is hosting an exclusive Happy Hour event sponsored by Spike DDB, Trojan Brand Condoms, GiGi, OPI and more. And guess what, not only will you mix, mingle and be schooled about HIV/AIDS but you will also be treated to some good tunes, divine cuisine, free stuff and more. And who doesn't love free stuff? The PSA produced by Academy Award nominated Director, Spike Lee will also be shown during the event.

Tune into Bag Ladies Reality Radio on Monday, June 22nd at 7:35p EST for an official reveal of event details and show schedule. We want you there and you won't want to miss this one!
