MAC Donates Cosmetic Services to CARES Clients
Monday, December 03, 2012
Nashville, TN – On November 28, MAC visited Nashville CARES and offered makeovers to our clients as part of their service to commemorate World AIDS Day. Clients who received makeovers gained a feeling of improved appearance which meant a lot in terms of building self esteem.
MAC is no stranger to Nashville CARES. Throughout the year, MAC supports Nashville CARES’ food program and provides volunteer services to help our clients. Most recently, MAC designed the make-up for Nashville CARES’ signature event, Under The Big Top: Avant-Garde Redux which raised approximately $75,000 for the fight against HIV/AIDS.
The MAC AIDS Fund’s mission is to service people of all ages, all races and all sexes affected by HIV and AIDS. To partner with the bold, the visionary and the brave who confront the epidemic in countries and communities where people are most neglected, off the radar and at highest risk. Responsive, agile and alert, MAF funds innovative programs that deal directly with the most marginalized, stigmatized and under-heard victims. MAF celebrates humanity, life, creativity and individuality.
