Holiday 2009: Give Pretty – World AIDS Day…

The statistics are staggering…Did you know that every 12 seconds another person contracts HIV; that every 16 seconds another person dies from AIDS; that there are 34,791,465 people living with HIV.


Today marks World AIDS Day and, beauty cosmetic companies have a few ways you can help.

  • Kiehl’s introduces Hand Care for a Cure, a Limited Edition version of its customer favorite, Ultimate Strength Hand Salve – with 100% of proceeds benefiting amfAR, The Foundation for AIDS Research. It features a unique design of the symbolic red ribbon, worn internationally to increase public awareness of AIDS.  Created out of red hand prints, this visual displays the many hands that AIDS has affected, as well as the many hands working together to find a cure.
  • Get those pretty holiday red lips with MAC Miracles Happen Viva Glam Lip Kit ($59) or send some holiday cheer with the Kids Helping Kids Cards ($12) which have been designed by children to help children affected by AIDS/HIV. The beautifully-illustrated cards convey a message of hope. Every single cent of both these items goes directly to the MAC AIDS Fund which helps to support men, women and children living with HIV/AIDS.

Please join me in supporting these two amazing charities for the holidays!
