As Co-founder and Global Ambassador of Keep A Child Alive Charity, Alicia Keys has turned to her celebrity friends in support for World Aids Day. Keys will be joined by other Twitter users in deleting their accounts until one million dollars is raised for those with HIV/ Aids in Africa.
Such supporters will include Lady Gaga, Usher, Jennifer Hudson, Kim Kardashian, Ryan Seacrest, Serena Williams, Elijah Wood and Justin Timberlake. Those participating have filmed videos speaking out about their last tweets and testament. The campaign also will showcase them in coffins to represent a digital death.
For those who are anxious at the thought of not knowing what a favorite a-lister will be up to, just relax and step away from creep mode.
Raise the money and Buy Life now.
In honor of World AIDS Day, we here at Glam Damn It have compiled a list of products that raise awareness and also save lives.
Converse: 5% of the net wholesale price of these CONVERSE (PRODUCT) RED shoes will be paid to The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria (Geneva, Switzerland).
Emporio Armani: 40% of its gross profit margins from sales of all Emporio Armani (RED) products will go directly to the Global Fund.
On December 1st 2005, Vivienne Westwood revealed that she had never planned to be a fashion designer! Westwood stated "I have always been political - I never really wanted to do fashion," she said. "Fortunately or unfortunately, it is my career, and I did it by accident. I continued to do it, because I think I'm good at it. I also like it because it gives me a status, a cache and a voice to sometimes say something." Fashionistas everywhere are glad she decided to go forward with fashion; without Westwood the punk movement would be nothing but a few teenagers trying to rebel from the conformity of society. She is the reason why plaid is so mainstream. Thanks Vivienne!
