DonataMeirelles Teams with amfAR to Fight AIDS

DonataMeirelles is probably best known for her work in the fashion world, notably as the style director for Vogue Brazil, and as a socialite. Lesser known to the general public is her charitable work, specifically her efforts to help provide education and research funding to fight AIDS globally. Meirelles is very dedicated to this cause, often working with amfAR to raise funds for their efforts to cure HIV and AIDS.

AmfAR- formerly the American Foundation for Aids Research- is a global leader in the fight against HIV and AIDS. They have been active sine the 1980s, raising funds for research and education into the epidemic. They are a global organization that has donated over $400 million to AIDS and HIV research. Meirelles was introduced to the organization through a friend that supported it, and she has been an avid fundraiser ever since. She has helped raise awareness of their mission through her social media presence, which reaches almost half a million people, and helped raise funds by participating in amfAR’s various fundraising events.

Chief among those fundraising events in the AmfAR Annual Cinema Against AIDS, a yearly fundraising auction that features memorabilia and fan encounters from films and actors. The most recent of these fundraisers, held in Cannes, France, raised nearly $20 million in funds for the charity. Meirelles was a participant in the event, as she often is.

Donata Meirelles and amfAR both support the Countdown to a Cure initiative, designed to push research and donations to help find a cure for HIV and AIDS by the end of 2020. While there is still a long way to go in battling this insidious disease, the initiative has raised over $100 million in additional funding since it was begun in 2015. With the goal within reach, Meirelles continues her efforts. Visit: http://www.andreavelame.com.br/vale-conferir/casa-amarela-o-estilo-de-donata-meirelles/
