Now through December 7, to help combat COVID-19 and AIDS with (RED), Apple is donating $1 to the Global Fund for every purchase made with Apple Pay on apple.com, in the Apple Store app, or at an Apple Store.
Apple has been a major partner to (RED) and its fight against AIDS for years. The organization has committed to redirecting donations to the Global Fund's COVID-19 Response until June 20, 2021.
(RED) is an organization that harnesses the power of people and companies to fight AIDS. By partnering with the world's most iconic brands, (RED) raises awareness and generates money for the Global Fund. All donations will be redirected to the Global Fund's COVID-19 Response through June 30, 2021. This will provide critical support in health systems most threatened by the outbreak and, in turn, help preserve lifesaving HIV/AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa.
According to the fine print, Apple will donate up to $1 million dollars from sales made through the next week. The company also notes that a portion of every (PRODUCT)RED purchase will also go to the COVID-19 fund.
