As reported by Look To The Stars in January, Fergie assists the M·A·C VIVA GLAM AIDS Fund in the essential task of educating the world about the importance of HIV and AIDS awareness.
“When AIDS first came on the scene, people were initially in a state of fright and everyone was so careful,” Fergie told E! “People don’t have that scare anymore. We have to let people know that it is still fatal, there’s no cure and that it is still real. I think it’s important to realize that half of all new HIV infections each year are in men and women 25 and younger. . . . I have friends that are proud of being careless, that haven’t been infected or who have been and aren’t bothered by it. I want to educate people.”
The M·A·C AIDS Fund was created in 1994 to support all people affected by HIV and AIDS across the globe. The organization provides monetary support to global associations that work with underserved regions and populations. Four key goals of the M.A.F are to raise awareness of the link between poverty and HIV and AIDS, prevention, access to care, and the importance of adherence to medications and treatments. Through the sales of M·A·C VIVA GLAM lipstick and lipgloss, the program has raised over 130 million dollars in the worldwide fight against AIDS and HIV.
Fergies new MAC Viva Glam VI lipstick hits stores on March 19.
