NEW YORK, Dec 1, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- eos Products is proud to partner once again with (RED) in its fight against AIDS and efforts to raise funds for prevention, treatment, counseling, testing and care services in sub-Saharan Africa.
Throughout the year, eos will support (RED) with its special edition (eos)RED lip balm to raise funds and awareness in the fight against AIDS. This year, as part of the fifth annual (RED) SHOPATHON, eos and (RED) are launching an interactive, shoppable AR Snapchat lens with the goal of reaching new, broader audiences and raising awareness of this preventable and treatable disease.
