On Season Eight of Project Runway, finalist Mondo Guerra brought fans to tears when he announced that he was HIV positive. Well, today, on World AIDs Day, Mondo is reminding his fans just how inspirational a person he was, and is, both as a designer and also a role model in his admirable advocation of AIDs research. Mondo recently partnered with Piperlime, an online fashion boutique, to sell his two recently designed limited-edition tee shirts, emblazoned with the life, soul, energy and love that is Mondo Guerra. The tees will be sold for $50 each, with $20 of every purchase to be donated to amfAR, the Foundation for AIDs Research. This organization is committed in its efforts to eliminate the global AIDs epidemic through painstaking research. Mondo’s words, modestly printed on one of the tee’s graphic designs, “vive y ama” or “live and love”, give us all a newfound sense of hope-something that we could all use a little more of in our lives. The tee shirts by Mondo are available to purchase HERE.
