With the launch of the second annual A Kiss for Country campaign, Mary Kay Inc. and the Country Music Association are joining forces to help raise awareness about domestic violence issues. Jewel and many of her fellow artists donated their “kiss prints,” using Mary Kay Crème Lipstick in Apple Berry, to framed Kiss Cards, which will be auctioned off for charity at uBid.com. Kellie Pickler, Taylor Swift, Reba McEntire and Miranda Lambert, along with male stars like George Strait and Rodney Atkins, were among the artists participating. The Kiss Cards will be available for bidding from now through Dec. 12, and all proceeds will benefit the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation. “I was really excited when Mary Kay asked me to be the spokesperson for this year’s campaign,” Jewel told Country Weekly. “I thought this campaign was great for a lot of reasons. Country music has always been the most charitable of all the communities I’ve been around, and all the artists were very willing to participate—even the guys.”
