In stores starting April 26, it was created to help raise awareness and funds (25% of the sales are donated) for youth HIV/AIDS projects around the world.

“When I was growing up, I thought we were all going to get AIDS — it was this big scary disease, but then it seems like people forgot about it, but the disease is still there and very much part of our lives,” shared Blair.
