The MAC AIDS Fund was established in 1994 by MAC Cosmetics to support people who are affected by HIV and AIDS worldwide.

Money is raised through the sale of VIVA Glam lipsticks, which are available in five brilliant colours from MAC stores and counters throughout the country.

How does it work?

Each lipstick costs just £10.77 and all of the money is donated to the MAC AIDS Fund and then distributed to charities worldwide.

Since 1997, MAC AIDS Fund has donated over £500,000 to Terrence Higgins Trust which has funded a variety of projects including Fastest clinics in Wolverhampton, Cardiff and Oxford and a Children and Families project in Birmingham.
