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!"
