M.A.C supports World AIDS Day

With World AIDS Day coming up on 1 December, we ask M.A.C what good things the M.A.C AIDS Fund is doing to support the day.

We love to hear about brands spreading the cheer that cosmetics can bring. So in the name of World AIDS Day next week, we thought we would ask the team at M.A.C Australia to tell us about how they plan to support the big day.

In case you somehow missed the memo, the makeup brand has had a long affiliation with the issues surrounding AIDS. Launching in 1994, the M.A.C AIDS Fund has been dedicated to supporting organisations around the world that assist people living and affected by HIV/AIDS.

The M·A·C AIDS Fund mission is to “serve people of all ages, all races, all sexes affected by HIV and AIDS. To partner with the bold, the visionary and the brave who confront the epidemic in countries and communities where people are most neglected, off the radar and at highest risk.”

The M·A·C AIDS Fund celebrates “humanity, life, creativity and individuality” through the sale of its celebrity endorsed VIVA GLAM lipstick. Every cent from the sale of these lipsticks and glosses go to helping people living with and affected by AIDS. What better excuse to buy lipstick!

All proceeds from the sale of M.A.C Viva Glam Lipstick goes to the M.A.C AIDS Fund.
