Country music artists puckered up to create a collection of kissed cards that are being auctioned off to fans on line until the end of this year. The framed lip prints were displayed earlier this month at the 41st Annual Country Music Association Awards.
Stars like Reba McEntire, Sara Evans, Jennifer Hanson, Miranda Lambert, Jo Dee Messina, Jennifer Nettles, Tanya Tucker and Wynonna applied their favourite Mary Kay lip product and left their prints on cards that were then analyzed by a “professional kissologist.”
Proceeds are to benefit the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation programs committed to ending domestic violence. The Foundation also funds research on finding cures for cancers affecting women. Says “A Kiss for Country” charity campaign spokesperson and country superstar Martina McBride, “Through the kisses of my fellow Country Music artists, we are hoping to help put an end to domestic violence.”
Mary Kay has also pledged, through the Foundation, a $20,000 grant to a women’s shelter in the name of each artist who donated a kiss, and up to $3 million to women’s shelters around the United States in 2008.
“With one in three women in this country affected by domestic violence, it is important for survivors to know there is help in their neighborhood,” said Mary Kay senior vice president Rhonda Shasteen.
