MAC’s New Zealand make-up artists work on Positive Women as part of World Aids Day

Filed by Lucire staff/November 30, 2011/2.15

MAC World Aids Day Volunteer Initiative

MAC’s make-up artists in New Zealand are contributing to the World Aids Day cause in a different way: by painting, gardening, and doing general maintenance to the premises of Positive Women, a local organization helping women with HIV.
   They’ll also spend time with Positive Women members on December 1 and give them makeovers to celebrate the day, while others will participate in collecting on the street in Auckland and Wellington.
   The New Zealand crew will be part of an 1,800-strong, 30-country effort by MAC.
   This is the third year of MAC’s World Aids Day Volunteer Initiative, running from November 28 to December 2 this year. It complements MAC’s Viva Glam products, from which 100 per cent of the selling price (not including sales’ tax) goes to the MAC Aids Fund.
   In New Zealand, funds have benefied Positive Women’s Digital Storytelling, Body Positive’s Rapid HIV Testing campaign, and the INA HIV and Aids Foundation. Further grants of US$50,000 and US$30,000 will be made this December to Positive Women and INA respectively.
