- Apple will donate $1 to the Global Fund COVID-19 Response for every purchase made at Apple for the next week.
Apple has sent an email to those subscribed to the Apple Pay newsletter announcing that the company will be donating $1 to the Global Fund for every purchase made using Apple Pay at an Apple retail store, through the Apple Store app, or through Apple's website. The donation period will exist between now and Monday, December 7 and the funds will be used to help fight COVID-19 with (RED).
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.
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.
Apple also announced earlier today additional ways that it was working to support the (RED) organization in its fight against COVID-19.
