Jewel and Fellow Country Music Artists “Pucker Up” for a Great Cause!
In the name of charity, singer/songwriter Jewel is doing her part to kiss domestic violence goodbye! As you may be aware, through a partnership with Mary Kay, the Official Beauty Sponsor of the “42nd Annual CMA Awards,” and the Country Music Association (CMA), Country Music artists were asked to donate their “Kiss Prints” as part of the 2nd Annual A Kiss for CountrySM philanthropic campaign – a kissable campaign dedicated to ending domestic violence through the powerful puckers of celebrities. As part of its $3 million commitment, the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation will provide a grant in the name of each participating artist to domestic violence prevention shelters around the country in 2009.
On November 11th, the day prior to "Country Music's Biggest Night," Jewel, the campaign spokesperson, is unveiling the kisses of some of the hottest Country Music artists today, including Luke Bryan! Jewel will hold a press conference in Nashville revealing the puckers her peers generously donated.
These kisses will be auctioned on uBid.com immediately following the press event with 100% of the proceeds benefiting the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation’s domestic violence prevention programs.
The auction began after the unveil press event at 10:30 a.m. CST on November 11, 2008 and will run until 5 p.m. EST on December 12, 2008 - head to uBid.com/charity to start bidding.
