Kiss and Joah Beauty partner with (RED) and launch nails, lashes and cosmetics to fight pandemics

KISS and JOAH Beauty launch special edition collection of nails, lashes and cosmetics that support (RED) in the fight against pandemics

KISS and JOAH Beauty are proud to partner with (RED) to announce today a special edition collection of nails, lashes and cosmetics that support (RED) in the fight against pandemics.

(RED) partners with the most iconic brands and people to create (RED) products and experiences — all of which raise money for the Global Fund, one of the world's largest funders of global health. To date, (RED) has generated nearly $700 million for the Global Fund, helping more than 245 million people.

Despite great progress in the fight against HIV, adolescent girls and young women continue to be disproportionately at risk of contracting HIV. In sub-Saharan Africa, 6 in 7 of new HIV infections among adolescents are among girls. COVID-19 lockdowns and school closures have only made the problem worse, and reinforced the need to fight both pandemics at once. Ensuring women and girls have access to life-saving health information and services is a critical component to ending HIV and a core component of all (RED)-funded grants.

Every purchase of a special edition (KISS)RED product will go towards saving lives with (RED). COVID continues to have a devastating impact on the most vulnerable communities and threatens to undo years of progress in the fight against AIDS. Now through December 31, 2022, KISS will donate a portion of every (KISS)RED product purchased to the Global Fund to help strengthen healthcare systems and fund life-saving programs in communities most in need, with a minimum donation of $100,000.
