  • Apple's 'RED' Contributions Top $70 Million


    According to an announcement Friday from (RED), a global organization focusing on the prevention and treatment of HIV and AIDS, efforts to combat this dreaded disease continue to prove fruitful. And Apple has played a key role in the process.

    "We're at critical moment in the fight against AIDS," the organization tweeted this morning. "Today 9.7 million people are on life-saving HIV treatment, up from 300,000 in 2002."

    Adding some "great news to end the week," (RED) says that Apple's total contributions to the cause have now reached $70 million, 100% of which goes to fight AIDS. "Thank you all for buying (APPLE)RED," the tweet concluded.

    Over the years, Apple has been a big backer of releasing and promoting the (RED)-branded products, which are now a well-known and established aspect of Apple's business.

      Lol, right?

      Unfortunately, people treat important issues like fads. One week, it's totally cool to be about a cause. The next? "Haven't they made it? They're just lazy now. I mean, we GAVE them millions, didn't we?"
