When we provide clean needles for drug addicts and reach out to detoxification centers, we have begun to end AIDS. When we help former HIV-positive carriers find homes and jobs, and adhere to medication We have begun to end AIDS. When we ensure that everyone living with HIV can get sick and receive medical care and treatment, we have begun to end AIDS. ‘— Sir Elton John )
Fifteen years ago, Caroline Schaefer, Co-President and Art Director of Chopard, first met with Sir Elton John. He advised her to actively participate in the affairs of the foundation. The meeting opened a long-lasting friendship and creative cooperation. The world-renowned artist joined forces with the Schafer family, the owner of the Chopard brand, to create the Elton John watch series, which shows the singer’s unique fashion sense. The sales of this series of watches are donated to the Elton John AIDS Foundation in a certain proportion. In addition to this watch collection, Chopard also supports the foundation through the Oscar Charity Party, and is once again proud to join the Elton John AIDS Foundation as the official sponsor of the 22nd Annual Oscar Charity Party.
