Apple Raised $65 Million for (Product) RED Charity to Help Fight AIDS in Africa
Bono, the U2 singer who currently leads the (Product) RED charity that Apple has been collaborating with since 2006 recently announced that Apple has raised more than $65 million to fight AIDS in Africa, a number which is quite impressive.
For those of you who didnít know, since its first debut with a special edition (Product) RED iPod nano in 2006, Apple has released several (RED) devices including iPod nanos and shuffles. The company has also produced a (RED) iPad Smart Cover, iPad mini Smart Cover, and an iPhone bumper along with a new (RED) iPhone 5S case. For every (RED) product bought, Apple donates a portion of the purchase price to the charity.
(Product) RED is affiliated with several other companies such as Starbucks, Nike and American Express. The charity has raised more than $200 million to date as a result of its efforts.
Have you bought any (Product) RED merchandise?

That's not that much at all. That's less than ten million a year.

I love (Product) RED products, I've always bought them when available, the color is great and the cause is even better!

The cause is a joke. It doesn't matter how much money you try and throw at HIV/AIDS especially in countries where men with the disease believe sh1t like having sex with a virgin can cure you. Or the church still refuses to allow the use of birth control of any kind, not even condoms which would at least slow down the infection rate. So by all means keep throwing money down the toilet, it's a nice color but a joke as a cause.

65 million is a lot of cash. My question is how is the money used? Research, bottles of water, doctors visits what? I always ask that about charities as most are structured like billion dollar businesses with CEO's and all. Hopefully the money used for the purposes intended and not going into the pocket of someone that needs anything but cash.
