Buy Yourself Something for Charity on World AIDS Day


Tomorrow, December 1st, is World AIDS Day and there are plenty of things you can do, but the least you can do is buy yourself something for charity. Here are some of the best consumer charity offers…

Make up!

M·A·C Cosmetics will match all Viva Glam product sales on any of the MACcosmetics.com ecommerce sites for a double donation. So while usually one Viva Glam purchase will buy five meals for a person living with HIV, on World AIDS Day, a Viva Glam lipstick purchased online can buy 10 meals.

To date, the M·A·C AIDS Fund has raised more than $270 million dollars which have helped men, women and children globally living with HIV/AIDS.

Sex Toys!

The Respect Yourself Project, back for its third year, has brands designing sex toys with Tenga. This year’s batch of international designers include the USA based Chari & Co NYC, Opening Ceremony, Married to the Mob and HUF, as well as various Japanese clothing labels, the artist Makoto Aida, cartoonist Santa Inoue, and China’s Blacksense.

RYP is a project based on a core concept of “Respect Yourself ~ Taking care of yourself will protect you from HIV” started by TENGA in 2010.

All products are limited edition with only limited quantities available. All proceeds will be donated to AIDS charities in participating countries.

Bono! And Starbucks!

Bono’s (Red) campaign continues with t-shirts and other red things you can boast.  This year, they’ve got Starbucks and Apple products on board.

Or give everything away instead

Have too much stuff already? Give it to the wonderful Housing Works, which will be accepting donations all day tomorrow.
