BEAUTY NEWS: SKINCARE & MAKE-UP
ACQUA FOR LIFE 2012 is a digital initiative by Giorgio Armani to stimulate public awareness of environmental and developmental problems, and raise funds on behalf of Green Cross International’s water programmes. Last year, more than 3 million litres of safe drinking water was collected, and by becoming a fan of the AFL Facebook fan page you will automatically give 50 litres of safe drinking water to communities in Ghana and Bolivia. When you become a fan you will also automatically take part in the Water Race – a group of people virtually racing from Milan to Ghana and Bolivia to bring water to the communities. Personalise your avatar, share your position via Google map on your Facebook wall, and learn about the places you are virtually visiting. The more people who like the page, the bigger the group gets, and so will the donation.
