ARTICLE: Jewel " A Kiss For Country"

Country Music Artist JEWEL, Mary Kay Cosmetics and the Country Music Association launched the second annual A KISS FOR COUNTRY CAMPAIGN to raise awareness for domestic violence on Tuesday November 11th at the Country Music Hall of Fame in Nashville.
Jewel was one of over 60 country music artists who have graciously donated a “kiss” using Mary Kay Apple Berry lipstick, added an autograph and personal message to special prints to be auctioned for charity at Jewel commented, “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.” Donating their kisses were both men and women of country music, including Sara Evans, Wynonna and Naomi Judd, Kellie Pickler, Jennifer Hanson, Reba McIntyre, Taylor Swift, Lee Ann Rimes and Miranda Lambert along with male stars like John Rich, Emerson Drive, George Strait and Rodney Atkins
Jewel voiced her personal reason for participating. "I experienced firsthand the fear and vulnerability that a lot of women experience, especially in abusive relationships. ... Domestic violence is a preventable problem -- and it's fixable." The Kiss Cards are available for bidding through December 12th, and 100 percent of the proceeds go towards domestic violence and benefit the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation.
