For over two decades, supermodel Naomi Campbell has been an advocate for raising awareness for AIDS and fundraising for a cure, even attending a conference at the United Nations on World AIDS Day in 2016.In honor of this year's World AIDS Day coming up tomorrow, December 1, Marc Jacobs is selling a T-shirt designed in collaboration with the supermodel to raise funds for UNAIDS, the Joint United Nations Programme on HIV and AIDS. In donating all proceeds from the new, limited edition top, it will support those around the world living with or affected by the disease.

The shirt is a simple black tee with a strong, activist message in bold bright pink font explaining the shirt's clear intention, "This is a t-shirt by Naomi Campbell and Marc Jacobs to raise funds for UNAIDS." In a statement, UNAIDS Executive Director Michel Sidibé said, "By buying this special T-shirt, people can help level the playing field and empower young women to make independent and life-changing decisions and assert their right to health.”

Ahead of tomorrow's World AIDS Day, the graphic tee is on sale now at marcjacobs.com and in select Marc Jacobs locations, retailing at $55. Preview the collaborative advocacy effort between Naomi Campbell and Marc Jacobs below.
