Today we received a check of 75.000 euros from the MAC AIDS Fund (from sales of Viva Glam lipsticks) to be used for Designers against AIDS and our projects with our International HIV/AIDS Awareness Education Center. This donation means the world to us, as it proves the validity of our work, so we're very proud and happy with this honour. With the money we can do a lot of new and exciting projects with our Belgian and international students, starting with our second Pop Up Shop that opens on May 9th at 1 PM in Antwerp's City Hall. There's still a lot of awareness about HIV/AIDS to be raised among youth and we won't stop 'til we get enough!

Here's to a long lasting partnership!
