MAC Holiday 2009: Viva Glam/Kids Helping Kids

13 October, 2009

Every year, as a fundraiser for the MAC AIDS Fund, MAC will do several fun gifty-type things, at a democratic price point so that you not only get a great gift, but as with all Viva Glam products, every cent of the selling price goes to support the MAC AIDS Fund. I read a thing at my local freestanding-the purchase of one VG lipstick or lipglass provides five meals for somebody who is living with HIV/AIDS. It’s an easy and tangible way to make your money work for you, and look better at the same time!

The first thing that MAC does is the Viva Glam Lip Palette. This features two lipsticks and a gloss in a palette-exactly like the lip ones, but in all the VG finery. Same price, same everything.

The other thing MAC does is the Kids Helping Kids range, which is a series of cards illustrated by kids, and the proceeds are used to help children everywhere who are living with HIV/AIDS. This year, the nice thing is that the cards are not themed-they can be used all-year round. What I would personally love to see MAC do is to have a range of Kids Helping Kids cards all year round, for any occasion, and then do a range of Christmas ones. I know I would buy the KHK cards over regular greeting cards-not only are they done by the kids, so you get to see some fun art, but I know that my money is doing good. Anywhoo, the options this year, for $6.50 each, are a 6-pack of cards, for any occasion, or a 12-pack of gift tags, also with no specific holiday in mind. I know I’m getting some of each!
