Lil Kim, Mary J. Blige Hook Up With M.A.C


Cosmetics, the cosmetics company, announced today that music superstars

Mary J. Blige and Lil' Kim have been named as spokespeople for

VIVA GLAM III Lipstick, the primary fund-raising tool for The

M.A.C AIDS Fund. Since its creation in 1994, over $14 million

dollars have been raised for The M.A.C AIDS Fund.

The Fund is dedicated

to supporting men, women and children living with HIV and AIDS.

100% of the suggested retail price of the Lipstick, $13.50, goes

to The M.A.C AIDS Fund. To kick off M.A.C's VIVA GLAM III campaign,

M.A.C President John Demsey, will presented a check on Monday

for $500,000 to the United Nations at a UN Town Hall Meeting on

the HIV/AIDS epidemic in Africa. This will be the first donation

from The M.A.C AIDS Fund to the UN specifically for African relief.

Lil' Kim is excited to be involved with The M.A.C AIDS Fund.

``When M.A.C approached

me, I was delighted not only because I wear their products, but

just knowing that I will be part of a campaign that will help

men, women and children with HIV and AIDS live comfortably.''

Lil' Kim continued, ``If I can help one person by lending my image,

I am going to do it!"
