Did you know that today is World AIDS Day? World AIDS Day is a day dedicated to raising awareness of the AIDS pandemic caused by the spread of the HIV infection. An organization called (RED) is a simple idea that transforms our incredible collective power as consumers into a financial force to help others in need. The organization teams up with iconic brands such as Converse, Apple, Dell, Starbucks, Nike, and GAP (just to name a few) to help create unique (RED) products, in which 50% of the profits are sent to the Global Fund to invest in HIV and AIDS programs in Africa. (RED) believes that by 2015, the number of babies born with HIV could be zero.
How can you help? Show your support! Head over to (RED)’s Facebook page to find out more information. You can also download an already-made profile image that you can place as your own to show others your continue support and awareness for the cause. Shops like Starbucks will be donating a portion of money received today to the (RED) project.
Awareness is key, biffles! Let’s do whatever we can to help change our world.
