SUPPORTER SINCE 1996
The New York-based skin care company, Kiehl’s Since 1851, has been a staunch supporter of amfAR’s AIDS research programs for two decades. Kiehl’s has also generously provided in-kind donations for event silent auctions, gift bags, and appreciation gifts for amfAR’s many VIP supporters.
Beginning in 2009, Kiehl’s created several limited-edition products to benefit amfAR’s innovative HIV/AIDS research programs. The following year, the company launched the Kiehl’s LifeRide for amfAR, an annual, week-long motorcycle ride through major US cities with multiple high-profile Kiehl’s store events to raise consumer and media awareness of the organization along the way.
These combined initiatives have raised more than $1.4 million for amfAR.
Kiehl’s was honored in 2007 with amfAR’s Award of Courage.
Salgardo, President, Kiehl’s USA:
“Dating back to 1996,
Kiehl’s has been committed to raising awareness of HIV/AIDS by partnering with
reputable organizations such as the Magic Johnson AIDS Foundation, YouthAIDS,
and amfAR. In fact, since 2001, Kiehl’s has proudly raised upwards of
$2,000,000 for the cause. From inception, it has been our mission to always
give back to the communities in which we do business, and to do our part to be
a socially responsible citizen. We are thrilled that we are able to donate to
amfAR, a charity that Kiehl’s has supported for many years.”
