A Valentine’s Day message from Erin O’Connnor

Erin's special message to Marie Claire readers on Valentine's Day

As some of you may already know, I became a (RED) Ambassador last year and had the opportunity to travel to Africa with (RED) to see exactly how the money contributed to the Global Fund via the sale of (PRODUCT)RED products affects those living with HIV and AIDS in Africa.

It is truly awe-inspiring.

Seeing the way lives are saved and improved by the antiretroviral medicines and seeing babies born free from HIV thanks to preventative medicine, has made me think even more about the fantastic (PRODUCT)RED products we have available to buy, enjoy and ultimately make a difference with.

Thanks to (RED), declaring your love has never been so easy or so powerful.

Whether you say it with a beautiful bouquet of ethically sourced flowers from FLOWE(RED) – the new online flower delivery service at FLOWERED.COM in which 100% of the profits go to Africa via the Global Fund; or the delightfully scented (diptyque)RED Special Edition candle – your gift will be sure to be appreciated by your loved one – and will go a long way in helping those less fortunate!

And there’s more! Some of you may not have seen the new (Converse)RED ‘I ♥ …’ shoe – which has kept the classic Chuck Taylor shape whilst incorporating an adorable heart element – gorgeous! I wear mine all the time!

These pieces are all great Valentine’s Day gifts but please also always look out for the fabulous (PRODUCT) RED products from the likes of Gap, Emporio Armani, Apple and Nike -and you must check out the new (Nike)RED dunks through the iD store!

Please show your love this Valentine’s Day by buying (RED) and saving lives. I know that’s what I’ll be doing.
