    Descriptive info: /#/glam/currentcampaign.. Nicki Minaj continues her reign as the hip-hop queen of M·A·C VIVA GLAM! The Lipstick-loving diva is back to serve up a delectable duo of Lipstick and Lipglass in an all-new shade of pastel lavender pink.. Every cent of the selling price goes toward helping women, men and children living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.. Limited edition.. Q A WITH NICKI MINAJ.. How did it feel when M•A•C Cosmetics chose you to be the next VIVA GLAM spokesperson?.. When M•A•C approached me to be a part of the VIVA GLAM campaign I wanted to hug everyone that worked there because I have always wanted to be a VIVA GLAM girl.. It’s an honour to represent the M•A•C AIDS Fund and join the long list of iconic, inspiring spokespeople who have contributed to raising  ...   people in the Caribbean.. It was heartbreaking to learn that young people aged 15-24 account for approximately half of all new infections in the Caribbean and only 40 percent of adolescents have accurate knowledge about HIV/AIDS and how it spreads.. I want to help raise awareness and education among this group.. What message about HIV/AIDS do you want to communicate to young people?.. First and foremost, educate, empower and protect yourself! It’s really important to understand that every single cent of the sale price of a VIVA GLAM lip product goes to the M•A•C AIDS Fund, which helps men, women and children affected by HIV/AIDS worldwide.. To date, the Fund has raised an amazing $280 million dollars so please help me continue the fight to improve the lives of those affected by HIV/AIDS.. Return Home..

Global Brand President.. As famous for her bi-annual performances on stage at International Artist Training Meetings as she is for her skyscraping stilettos and bronzed blonde glamour, what truly sets Karen Buglisi, Global Brand President of M∙A∙C Cosmetics, apart from the crowd is her boundless energy, endless enthusiasm and ceaseless dedication to the M∙A∙C family.. Laughing as she addresses her now legendary dance moves, Ms.. Buglisi says, “I think sometimes we’re so serious that we forget to have a little bit of fun! My point of view is that if I want our Artists to put themselves out there for the brand every day, I should put myself out there for them.. ” “Karen has superb leadership skills and has been instrumental in developing M∙A∙C into the number one makeup artist brand in the world,” says John Demsey, Group President of The Estée Lauder Companies.. “She has done a tremendous job inspiring our M∙A∙C Makeup Artists, who are at the heart of the brand and the key to our success.. ” Seemingly born with a suitcase in hand, the indefatigable Ms.. Buglisi, an army brat, was born in Japan, moved to Taiwan and then to California by the time she was four.. “My father was my hero.. He was the most disciplined person I ever met in my life..

C.. , where she discovered the Beauty industry at the age of 16 selling Helena Rubinstein at The Hecht Company in Prince George’s Plaza.. “I’ve always liked makeup.. I got the job and thought, ‘what a great thing, I can wear makeup everyday and teach people about makeup and how you can make yourself feel better and look better.. ’ I never looked at it and said, ‘Ok, one day I’m going to be president of a makeup company.. ’ That never even crossed my mind!” Working everyday since she was a teenager, in addition to raising three sons as a single mother, it’s no surprise that Ms.. Buglisi describes herself as someone who loves challenges.. “Raising my sons has brought out a strength and determination I was never fully aware of.. I know many parents can identify with this.. That strength has been so meaningful as I have navigated through my life.. I do not scare easily.. ” A member of the Board of Directors of the M∙A∙C AIDS Fund since 2004, she adds, “I remember sitting my kids down and talking to them about being respectful to girl and to always protect themselves by wearing a condom.. You want to embarrass your sons, just have that conversation with them! Let’s put it this way, someone had to do it and it was me! It’s just too important not to have it! Before being recruited by Mr.. Demsey in 1998 as Vice President of North American Sales and Artist Training and Development, Ms.. Buglisi was national sales manager for the U.. S.. market for Adipar, a division of the worldwide fashion house Escada, and has also held the position of field sales manager for Borghese, a global cosmetic, skincare and fragrance company.. “Servicing customers at retail and learning how to be a merchant have been invaluable in my career..

  • Title: MAC AIDS FUND
    Descriptive info: /#/work/programs.. Since the M·A·C AIDS Fund (MAF) launched in 1994, we have been dedicated to supporting bold and innovative organizations around the world that provide vital services and strengthen the safety net for people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.. To keep our grant-making relevant and responsive, we meet regularly with leaders in the field - our grantees, peer funders, and the people working on the front lines - to stay aware of emerging needs and trends and identify funding and service gaps.. North America - Community Grants.. North America - HIV and Aging.. North America - Harm Reduction.. Special Programs - Women's Initiative.. Special Programs - Kids Helping Kids.. International - Affiliate Community Grants.. International - Focus on South Africa.. International - Focus on the Caribbean.. Over the next year, our North American Programs will continue to address the link between poverty and HIV/AIDS.. Our International Programs will continue to address the HIV/AIDS epidemic in two high-prevalence areas: South Africa and the Caribbean.. Through the International Affiliate Community Grants Program we will continue to support programs that provide vital services to people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS around the world.. Through our special initiatives we will continue to support programs and collaborations all over the world that effectively and strategically focus on underserved and stigmatized populations and promote leadership, best practices, and innovation in direct services, prevention, and other areas critical in the fight against HIV/AIDS.. North America.. Community Grants.. Everybody is waiting for a magic bullet to cure AIDS, when we already have it: It's called housing.. Poor and homeless people account for the majority of new infections.. Give them stable housing and you will see the end of this epidemic.. Stable housing is the only way that poor and homeless people will ever develop ongoing access to healthcare and build the network of relationships necessary to getting and staying healthy with HIV.. Charles King, President and CEO, Housing Works.. United States Grants.. The United States Community Grants Program addresses the connection between poverty and HIV/AIDS by supporting U.. based nonprofit organizations that provide nutrition and housing services to people living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.. There are two application deadlines per year for the U.. Community Grants Program; one for food/nutrtion and one for housing.. Eligible organizations may only apply for one of these two programs each year.. Canada Grants.. The Canadian Community Grants Program addresses the link between poverty and HIV/AIDS by supporting Canadian nonprofit organizations that provide vital direct services to individuals living with and affected by HIV/AIDS.. Our goal is to support programs and services that enable individuals to live as independently as possible and to allow a high quality of life.. Programs eligible for funding under the Canadian Community Grants Program include, but are not limited to, food and nutrition, transportation assistance, prevention and education, treatment adherence, buddy services and transitional housing.. We support the direct services most needed in a particular community based on the prevalence of HIV/AIDS and the availability of other public or private funding sources.. There are two application deadlines per year for the Canadian Community Grants Program.. Eligible organizations may only apply for one Community Grant each year.. Please note that the maximum grant that may be requested is CAD $50,000.. Organizations that receive a Community Grant may still be eligible to apply for a Special Initiative Grant.. HIV and Aging.. Things get better with age - including sex! You can be smart and sexy.. Within five years, half the people living with HIV will be over 50 and now Medicare pays for HIV testing to reach more 'Eldersexuals.. ' The M·A·C AIDS Fund's visionary support made these kinds of changes happen.. Marjorie Hill, CEO, Gay Men's Health Crisis (GMHC).. HIV AND AGING.. Teenagers aren't the only people engaging in risky behavior and unprotected sex.. HIV/AIDS doesn't discriminate - older people of all sexes are just as vulnerable to HIV/AIDS as everyone else.. To address the needs of older people living with HIV/AIDS, MAF supports collaborations among ACRIA, Gay Men’s Health Crisis (GMHC), Griot Circle and SAGE.. Their work includes the creation of a bold, first-of-its-kind HIV social marketing campaign on prevention targeting older adults as well as a ground-breaking training program that informs New York City senior-serving organizations about the expansive and unique direct services needs of people living with HIV and present HIV prevention messages in age-appropriate language.. The advocacy, service and prevention models resulting from this highly effective collaboration have brought greater visibility to this underserved population, inserted aging issues into public policy on HIV/AIDS and secured increased public funding for HIV-related programming for older adults.. Harm Reduction.. M·A·C AIDS Fund support for harm reduction services has been critical.. Few funders have prioritized the lives of drug users.. Without the MAF, syringe exchange programs would have been forced to shutter their doors and successful policy change could not have happened.. The magnitude of pain and the number of lives lost as a result of a 20-year ban on funding of syringe exchange is incalculable.. MAF has helped undo the damage and begin the healing.. Allan Clear, Executive Director, Harm Reduction Coalition.. HARM REDUCTION.. Outspoken, intrepid and ahead of the curve, M·A·C AIDS Fund has never feared to take risks and support programs that other funders deem too controversial.. When syringe exchange programs (SEP’s) were considered taboo, MAF assumed a leadership role in supporting these harm-reduction programs that have contributed to a decrease in rates of HIV infection among intravenous drug users (IDUs).. The American Medical Association, National Academy of Sciences, American Public Health Association, and numerous scientific sources all agree that SEPs are a non-judgmental and highly effective way of providing integrated services to IDUs and encouraging HIV counseling, testing and drug treatment.. Building on the recent successes in the field we continue  ...   leaders with the key skills they need to operate on the front lines of the battle against AIDS, and also against gender inequality, in South Africa and beyond.. Anke A.. Ehrhardt, Ph.. D.. , Director, HIV Center for Clinical and Behavioral Studies, Columbia University.. According to UNAIDS, an estimated 5.. 6 million people in South Africa are living with HIV, of which approximately 3.. 3 million are women and 330,000 children.. Since 2000, the M·A·C AIDS Fund has donated over USD $20 million for HIV/AIDS programs in South Africa.. Our two largest programs in South Africa - the VIVA GLAM Global Partnership and the M·A·C AIDS Fund Leadership Initiative - focus on women and children.. VIVA GLAM Global Partnership.. The M·A·C AIDS Fund (MAF) has had an astounding impact upon the HIV/AIDS epidemic through the incredible success of the VIVA GLAM campaign.. To maximize the impact of its international grant making, we created the M·A·C VIVA GLAM Global Partnership Program.. This initiative pools the funds raised through VIVA GLAM sales in designated countries to support two critical programs in South Africa - UNICEF and Nurturing Orphans for AIDS Humanity (NOAH).. With support from MAF, UNICEF provides HIV testing and treatment to pregnant women and children with the goal of preventing the transmission of HIV from mother to baby and keeping HIV-positive mothers and babies alive and healthy.. In addition to expanding programs for the prevention of mother-to-child transmission of HIV, MAF support has made it possible for provincial governments to incorporate HIV testing into existing immunization programs, providing a critical opportunity to identify HIV-positive children and link them with treatment.. NOAH provides food, shelter and other basic necessities for over 5,000 children orphaned by HIV, many of whom are living with HIV/AIDS.. Each year since 2008, the M·A·C AIDS Fund (MAF) provided daily meals for 1,381 children orphaned by HIV.. In addition, MAF's support allowed NOAH to provide essential health and hygiene supplies to children in its care and to supply bed nets to children in malaria ridden areas.. MAF will continue its commitment NOAH's homes, helping to improve the standard of living and educational opportunities for the children in NOAH's care.. South African Leadership Initiative.. Every year 500,000 South Africans become newly infected with HIV/AIDS.. In order to end the epidemic in South Africa and decrease rates of infection, it is vital to train local leaders in HIV/AIDS prevention who can learn from past successes and failures and develop new and innovative HIV-prevention programs.. To meet this need, MAF has partnered with two of the world’s leading educational institutions - Columbia University and the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) - to create the M·A·C Leadership Initiative.. In 2009, the Human Science Research Council, South Africa's statutory research agency, joined this partnership, bringing critical new local leadership to the program.. Each year a group of local emerging leaders applies for participation in the fellowship program with a proposed HIV/AIDS prevention plan.. Selected fellows work with local and international experts in HIV/AIDS prevention to further refine and develop their plans.. Upon completion of an intensive two-month training program, fellows are given small seed grants to launch their prevention plans.. The year-long fellowship program provides fellows with ongoing mentorship throughout the first year of program implementation.. The goal of the program is to create a network of local HIV prevention experts and a range of innovative prevention programs that will lead the next generation of South Africans in the fight against HIV/AIDS.. Focus on the Caribbean.. The M·A·C AIDS Fund has been a critical supporter of AIDS-Free World's advocacy work in the Caribbean.. It has supported our speaking out about the politically explosive human-right’s issues driving the region’s epidemic.. If we fail to tackle the state-sponsored homophobia that increases the vulnerability to the virus of men who have sex with men and the violence against sex workers and migrants, two populations severely affected by the pandemic, we don't stand a chance of stopping the spread of HIV/AIDS in the region.. Stephen Lewis and Paula Donovan, Co-Directors, AIDS-Free World.. Next to sub-Saharan Africa, the Caribbean has the world’s highest HIV-infection rate, with Haiti and the Dominican Republic together accounting for 85 percent of the infections.. AIDS is now one of the leading causes of death among those aged 15-44 and more than half of adults living with the virus are women.. Heterosexual sex is the primary form of transmission in the region.. Through the Caribbean Initiative, the M·A·C AIDS Fund (MAF) supports a wide range of organizations in the Dominican Republic, Haiti and Jamaica that are addressing critical aspects of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.. The goals of the Initiative are threefold: to seed and strengthen prevention, care, treatment, and advocacy programs; to shine a light on the challenges of prevention through the support of media efforts; and to attract and encourage increased private and public donor support.. MAF has given over $10 million to the Caribbean since 2007.. In Jamaica, MAF is working with the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, HIV/AIDS and Malaria and the Clinton Foundation HIV/AIDS Initiative (CHAI) to support HIV/AIDS prevention, care and treatment services.. MAF also partners with CHAI in the Dominican Republic where it focuses on providing care and treatment to Haitian immigrants living with HIV/AIDS who are not otherwise able to access government programs.. In Haiti, MAF works closely with Partners in Health to provide food to people living with HIV/AIDS, helping them to live longer and healthier lives.. MAF has also supported advocacy efforts by groups such as AIDS-Free World and Immigration Equality, who work with local and international governments to improve policies that negatively impact people living with HIV/AIDS.. Finally, the Fund has partnered with the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting to highlight critical underreported HIV/AIDS issues in the Caribbean in the media..

It costs about $1000/month for a one-bedroom apartment.. If you’re surviving on social security ($1,100/month) or living on public assistance ($600/month) where are you going to live? Early on, we recognized that AIDS was simultaneously a disease of poverty, accompanied by homelessness and what’s euphemistically called “food insecurity.. ” I call it hunger.. span class="quote" What about health care? /span Health care needs to be understood as an issue that goes hand in hand with the need for stable housing; without it, consistent health care is virtually impossible.. Imagine if your life is chaotic because of poverty and you’re struggling to manage this frequently horrific illness, attend a drug addiction treatment, keep doctors’ appointments and get food for your kids, but without a consistent place to live.. Effective health care depends on taking these complex factors into account.. span class="quote" Do you have an equal number of male and female clients? /span Women represent about 30% of our clients, about equal to the percentage of women in the United States living with HIV/AIDS.. Women, however, are undercounted in most strategies and mostly ignored in national and local HIV/AIDS policy.. Most clinical trials have been conducted with men, so there’s a lack of understanding of how these treatments affect women.. On the ground, I see increasing numbers of women in their 40’s and 50’s whose lives have been devastated by loss – of their children to ACS and their partners to jail, drugs and illnesses including AIDS.. They’ve been evicted from their homes, subjected to violence and often forced to do sex work for minimal survival.. These women have little or no voice.. How can we stand by and watch an entire healthcare system pass them by? span class="quote" With so many causes vying for support, how do you keep the focus on HIV/AIDS? /span It’s very hard.. HIV and AIDS expose the intersection of racism, homophobia, gender misogyny and poverty, in a graphic way.. They have to be tackled to make change.. We look for ways to “market” solutions so they don’t sound so overwhelming.. span class="quote" Bailey House has really embraced social media and pop culture – how does this further the cause? /span Many of us came to HIV and AIDS work from a social justice background.. You have to know what’s happening on the ground, how culture drives disparities and inequities.. It’s imperative to keep our work connected to the community or it loses its power to make change.. I continually work to make social change – through federal, national and local advocacy activism.. I was just arrested in November for civil disobedience….. span class="quote" You politely blogged the day before you were arrested that you would be engaging in civil disobedience because then-Governor Patterson went back on his word about the rental cap legislature.. /span I did.. It was the first time I was arrested.. I had to ask my kids’ permission because I agreed about 8 years ago (when they were 8 and 13) that I wouldn’t get arrested.. They understood the significance of trying to live on $360 a month, which is what many PLWHAs are left with after NYC and NYS take over 70% of their income.. We weren’t asking the government for money, we were asking them not to take peoples’ money.. We were charged with obstructing traffic and we were out in an hour [most demonstrations are negotiated in advance with the police].. A week before our court date, the judge dismissed the charges against all the women who were arrested.. This is one time sexism worked in my favor.. span class="quote" Have you ever felt like giving up? /span There are times when I feel really tired.. It’s sometimes painful having to ask one more person to provide financial support for things I know are life and death.. Often it’s easier to garner support for the more obvious problems, but I’ve seen something as ostensibly small as a bowl of oatmeal make an incredible difference.. It can be challenging to get people to understand that making a difference doesn’t require having to solve all of someone’s problems.. It’s often the smallest gesture that makes an immediate, impactful difference.. span class="quote" What keeps you going? /span The people I work with, both staff and clients.. Our clients are remarkable.. At times, it’s inconceivable to me that they could be hopeful – but they are – and they’re resilient.. I see how far a little bit of support goes and how the world really can be different if we just take care of each other.. I’m also supported by family – my kids, my former partner of 20 years, my new partner, my friends and the amazing “entourage” of advocates working in the HIV/AIDS community – who keep me going….. And, of course, funders, like all of you keep making this work possible.. /span You fall in love with someone backpacking across Europe or on a business trip in Asia.. Imagine…it’s the fairy tale version of your life come true.. Unless you’re gay.. Rachel Tiven, Executive Director of Immigration Equality, knows all too well how few gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and HIV-positive people find happily ever after endings when they fall in love with someone from a different country.. Tiven works tirelessly at personal and federal levels to rewrite immigration laws and to win LGBT equal rights.. It’s a tricky network of laws, but Immigration Equality has made significant headway over the last few years – challenging Congress to lift an antiquated Federal ban that barred people with HIV from entering the United States and garnering support from the Oval Office on dire asylum cases, especially in the Caribbean.. Tiven’s goal is to keep families and lovers together.. You could say Tiven is the ultimate hopeful romantic.. span class="quote" Why are immigration rights for same sex couples so important? /span I can’t think of anything more tragic than being separated from the person you love.. The price of anti-gay discrimination should not be physical separation without hope of being reunited.. This is really a cruel and purposeless kind of discrimination.. span class="quote" Last year you had a big win – the US lifted the ban on travel and immigration for people living with HIV/AIDS.. /span That was a huge victory.. It ended a dangerous and pointless policy that encouraged people who were HIV-positive to go underground and live in denial because it could jeopardize their immigration status.. It proved  ...   level in the job.. But more importantly, it would be great if someday soon my job and HRC became unnecessary!.. /span Island life is anything but laid back for Dane Lewis, the executive director of JFLAG – the Jamaican Forum for Lesbians, All-Sexuals and Gays.. Named by Human Rights Watch in 2004 as the most homophobic place on earth, Jamaica has seen improvements since then.. But it is still a long way from a tolerant nation, and although there aren’t as many hate murders as there once were, every year 40 incidents of violence against the GLBT community still get reported.. Against this backdrop, HIV rates among men who have sex with men in Jamaica are startlingly high at over 38% and it is believed that this environment has contributed to a situation in which men who have sex with men are unable or unwilling to come forward for HIV prevention, testing, care and treatment services.. But lately, that is changing, as JFLAG, founded in 1998 and supported by the M·A·C AIDS Fund, runs regular rallies and protests and makes its presence known to the parliament and the police The organization has the dual goals of improving the lives of gays, bisexuals and lesbians in Jamaica and creating an environment in which these groups can be reached with effective HIV prevention, care and treatment programs.. Writer Bob Morris talks to Lewis about life on an island that at times seems the opposite of its “One Love” advertising campaigns.. span class="quote" Your organization doesn’t publish its address.. Are you scared of being attacked? /span Yes.. And when I began my job in 2008, I also used a pseudonym and would not show my face in the media.. Since then I have dropped the pseudonym.. It’s a test to see where we are in terms of tolerance.. I don’t want to be living a lie.. span class="quote" JFLAG, your organization, has been holding monthly rallies lately.. Is that going well? /span We have been working with the police to be supportive, and they have improved from recent years when they were physically and verbally abusive to gays and transsexuals.. Part of the service we provide is making our people comfortable with the police and taking them in to report crimes.. span class="quote" Why did you take the job of executive director of JFLAG? /span I’ve always been involved in the community as a volunteer.. Years ago, whenever my parents went away, I’d organize support group meetings in their house.. Then when the previous head of JFLAG sought asylum in Canada because he’d been under threat here, I took the JFLAG job.. Since then we have more than doubled our staff from two to four.. span class="quote" What is courage to you? /span The will to do what you have to do regardless of potential dangers.. span class="quote" Who do you think of as a courageous public figure? /span We have a local politician here named Ronne Thwaites who is also a well-respected deacon of his Catholic church.. He has always been vocal about the need to respect the rights of all people and end discrimination.. span class="quote" What’s the most courageous thing you’ve ever done? /span After changing my pseudonym and coming out to my mother, it is standing at our rallies and marches holding the banner that bares the JFLAG name.. Crowds yell degrading comments.. Sometimes they yell “Fire!” They want us to burn.. And that’s one of the more palatable things they yell.. But we also get people honking horns in support as they drive by and giving us the thumbs up.. span class="quote" Are you afraid of anything right now? /span No, not really, not even death because we all have to die sometime.. I can’t live my life in fear or I would never leave home.. span class="quote" What gives you hope? /span When we have our political rallies and I see the police now want to support us and make us feel comfortable.. It’s really a daily stripping away of fear.. I’m less afraid than I was three years ago, and that’s great.. It was wonderful and felt like, still feels like, a great big old shot of B-12 with some gold in it as it recharged not just our clients but all of us.. Renewal and transformation, that's what it is all about.. There was a lot of joy in this building and still is.. and three of the M·A·C professionals want to be volunteers for MAP.. You all did more in 120 minutes to dismantle shame and stigma associated with HIV than some of the great institutions have been able to do.. Believe it.. Thank you again for your gift.. Joanne Stevenson Jenkins, Metrolina AIDS Project.. It's amazing to see what the gentle touch of a M·A·C Artist can do to restore the look of health.. Created by MAF in 2002, Good Spirits is a free pubic service initiative - a personal, customized consultation to explore colours, foundations, concealers, tips and beauty trends that can make all the difference in how a person living with HIV/AIDS looks and feels, elevating self-esteem, a sense of well-being and boosting confidence.. More than simply mastering makeup, Good Spirits is about uplifting the state of mind.. I'm not one for theatrics or gimmicks - so I'm NOT doing the AIDS Walk in high heels.. And I've never been grim in my approach to getting people to shell out their hard-earned cash.. But I have sent out pictures of my Schnauzer, Linus.. He's so handsome and I think puts a lighter spin on fundraising by explaining how he has to take four steps for every one step I take.. While there is still loss of life from AIDS, which obviously gets many people out - in their memory, for me, the motivation is about making sure people with HIV and AIDS stay alive and well.. Raising money so people can LIVE! Linus and I have walked for the last four years.. Tim Tareco Vice President, Creative Global Visual Merchandising and Design, M·A·C Cosmetics.. M·A·C employees are not only committed to raising money for the M·A·C AIDS Fund through the sale of Viva Glam, they also are heavily involved with fundraising for HIV/AIDS organizations in their local communities through AIDS Walks.. Each year M·A·C teams participate in AIDS Walk across North America.. They show their spirit and heart by raising money and walking with their friends and families to support these local organizations.. The M·A·C AIDS Fund is pleased and proud to be able to match funds, dollar for dollar, raised by M·A·C employees who participate in AIDS Walks in the U.. and Canada.. The fact that the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS are improved every time a makeup artist sells a VIVA GLAM product has always been a great source of pride at M·A·C.. The M·A·C AIDS Fund is truly the heart and soul of our company — there is commitment to the cause at every level.. Our deep tie to the Fund creates a great camaraderie and bond among our employees.. It is wonderful to see the employees unite time and again on such an important day and lend their time to support the global fight against HIV/AIDS.. Nancy Mahon, Senior Vice President, M·A·C Cosmetics and Global Executive Director of the M·A·C AIDS Fund.. M·A·C employees are known for their style, spirit, soul and passion but most of all, their collective heart! Every year, on World AIDS Day, December 1st, M·A·C employees take off their brush belts, roll up their sleeves, and volunteer at HIV/AIDS organizations all over the world.. They made gingerbread houses in Manhattan Planted an herb garden in Malaysia Slept in the snow in Dublin Served lunch in Los Angeles Delivered meals in Minnesota Wrapped gifts in Sydney Sold teddy bears in Cologne Designed a mural in London Decorated faces in Johannesburg Painted an orphanage and played games with children in Argentina Did house repairs in Chile Made-up mothers in Bali M·A·C EMPLOYEES SPEAK OUT: "Selling a VIVA GLAM Lipstick is fulfilling.. Knowing what the $14.. 50 can do is amazing.. Actually delivering the food that the $14.. 50 purchased is life changing.. Every lipstick I sell has a face and a name, I met those individuals the day I volunteered.. " "We were there to give, but we received more.. " "Volunteering helped me connect with my inner-kid; it gave me an opportunity to see exactly where MAF money goes.. I enjoyed spending more time on the VIVA part of the M·A·C AIDS Fund since my life as an Artist represents the GLAM.. "..

The primary goal of this initiative is to positively impact the nutritional health of people living with HIV/AIDS (PLWHA).. In addition to strengthening the body’s natural ability to fight and combat infections that can be lethal to a person living with HIV/AIDS, proper nutrition maximizes the effectiveness of anti-retroviral drug treatments and also reduces and offsets the negative side-effects of medication..
