NEW YORK, Nov. 28, 2023 —  On today, Giving Tuesday (November 28th), and in lead up to World AIDS Day (December 1st), through the holidays, (RED), the organization co-founded by Bono and Bobby Shriver to fight AIDS, is offering a number of ways to fight injustice and save lives. From one-of-a-kind events and experiences to gifts that give back, the (RED) “Holiday Edit,” which is supported by Merck (known as MSD outside the U.S. and Canada), is a definitive guide to giving, gifting, and saving lives this holiday season. Merck will also contribute $200,000 to the Global Fund to support the fight against AIDS with (RED).

The (RED) Holiday Edit

Apple Marks World AIDS Day with (RED)
For 17 years, Apple and its customers have supported (RED) and the Global Fund in the fight against HIV/AIDS. This year, a number of Apple services – including Apple Pay, Apple Books, and Apple Podcasts – will offer easy ways to support and learn more.

Additionally, Apple Watch Series 9 is available in a (PRODUCT)RED aluminum case with a (PRODUCT)RED Sport Band, and pairs well with a collection of specially customized watch faces celebrating World AIDS Day.

A portion of the proceeds of every (PRODUCT)RED purchase goes to the Global Fund to fund HIV/AIDS programs in sub-Saharan Africa.
