Bono and others are launching a campaign to help HIV/AIDS victims in Africa called (Red). (Click the link of go to www.joinred.com). There is also a blog: (Blog) Red
Here's the gist of the campaign: A number of companies have teamed together to donate a portion of the sales of their "red products" to The Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa and elsewhere. There are red credit cards, red shoes (I am going to buy a pair of the Converse Red shoes), red fashion brands, red phones, etc. And as the website says:
No, this does not mean they are all red in color. Although some are.
Go to the website join red to read more about the campaign and products.
As some of you know I lived in Cote D'Ivoire, West Africa (Cote D'Ivoire is the official name. It's French or Ivory Coast in English) for 2 plus years and have a deep connection and bond to the African people. They are a proud and beautiful people who need our help. I saw first hand the terrible effects of HIV/AIDS there.
6,500 Africans die EACH DAY from AIDS!!!!!!!
Please consider buying one (or more) of these (RED) products to help fight the HIV/AIDS scourge.
Thanks for reading this and if you feel you can not afford to buy any of these products please pass this information on to someone you feel might be interested.
