When MDG opened its doors in 1985, we were in the midst of an epidemic that rocked our industry to its core. An illness had stricken many people in the beauty industry; it was a scary time. During a 10-year period, we lost 8 beautiful people to this disease. Twenty-six years later, there is still no cure for AIDS; and while awareness, education and advancements in medicine have greatly helped better control AIDS in our country, it is still an epidemic in many parts of the world – namely Africa.
Today, December 1, 2011 is World AIDS Day. In memorandum of those of the MDG family who lost the battle to this terrible disease, we’d like to honor their spirit and memory by supporting the efforts of all those who fight for the advancement of this cause everyday.
