"We are proud to partner with (RED) in collaboration with Helena Christensen to help support the Global Fund in their pursuit of an AIDS-free world. Our goal is to leverage the power of our global platform to raise awareness of this important cause amongst our international shoppers. This partnership is in keeping with the Chic Outlet Shopping® Villages' ongoing commitment to supporting humanitarian projects around the world."

We're thrilled to have Helena Christensen launching the partnership - she has been an incredible friend to (RED) over the years and supporter of our mission to help eliminate AIDS."
Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED)
"When Chic Outlet Shopping approached me with this project I was excited to get involved. I have been a longtime supporter of (RED) and am thrilled that the sale of the bag will contribute to the goal of achieving an AIDS-free generation by 2015."
