Good guy Apple donating lotsa clams to (RED) in the fight against AIDS

Apple is again supporting World AIDS Day by doing a whole bunch of stuff, including donating $1 to (RED) for every purchase made with Apple Pay at an Apple Store, on Apple.com, or through the Apple Store app, up to a total of $1 million, starting tomorrow through December 6.

 

Over 400 Apple retail stores around the world will  turn their logos red or feature (RED) window decals on December 1 to raise visibility for World AIDS Day.

 

From The Sauce, Tim Cook:

 

“The gift of life is the most important gift that anyone can give,” said Tim Cook. “Thanks to the vision and dedication of (RED), an AIDS-free generation is within our reach. We want to leave the world better than we found it, and that’s why our longtime partnership with (RED) remains so important to us.”

 

Bank of America will also be making a donation for every Apple Pay transaction made using its cards, also up to $1 million, on December 1-7.

 

Apple will release new PRODUCT(RED) products available today, with a portion of proceeds raised from these products support The Global Fund.

 

For the next week, some App Store games will be offering limited-edition, custom (RED) content. All proceeds from the associated in-app purchases will go to The Global Fund. The 20 apps set to participate are:

 

• Angry Birds 2
• Angry Birds POP!
• Best Fiends
• Best Fiends Forever
• Boom Beach
• Candy Crush Jelly Saga
• Clash of Clans
• Clash Royale
• CSR2

In the United States, Apple is offering a free iTunes download of The Lazarus Effect, the documentary about the mission of (RED) – not the horror movie starring Olivia Wilde_.

 

ALLLLSO, 100% of U.S. proceeds raised from The Killers’ holiday album Don’t Waste Your Wishes, exclusively available on iTunes, will go to The Global Fund.

 

People are also encouraged to donate directly to (RED) through iTunes to join the fight against AIDS.
