Valentine's Day isn't for another three months, but Jewel is helping kick off the second annual Kiss for Country charitable campaign, aimed at wiping out domestic violence – with Reba McEntire, Laila Ali, LeAnn Rimes, Kellie Pickler, Wynonna, Naomi Judd, Sarah Evans and Jennifer Hanson also among those lending their lips for the cause.
The country artists are providing their kiss prints and autographs so they can be auctioned off to benefit domestic violence prevention starting next Tuesday, Nov. 11, when Jewel will unveil the love signs.
The auction, on uBid.com, runs through Dec. 12, with all proceeds benefiting the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation and domestic violence prevention.
Mary Kay is the official beauty sponsor of the 42nd Annual CMA Awards, in partnership with the Country Music Association. As part of a $3 million commitment, the Mary Kay Ash Charitable Foundation will provide a grant in the name of each participating artist to domestic violence prevention shelters around the country in 2009.
The 42nd Annual CMA Awards airs live from Nashville on Wednesday, Nov. 12.
