The (RED) Manifesto
Every Generation is known for something.
Let’s be the one to deliver an AIDS FREE GENERATION.
How does this work?
“When you buy (RED) from the world’s most iconic brands, they donate up to 50% of the proceeds to fight AIDS. We’re at a tipping point in the fight – with action and urgency, it’s possible for the world to end the transmission of HIV from moms to their babies.” (red.org)
Beats by Dr. Dre contributes $5 from each Solo HD (PRODUCT)RED Special Edition headphones to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. The Beats by Dre mission is to provide a superior end-to-end music experience – with headphones, speakers, devices and services – so fans feel the emotion and hear the music the way artists intended it to sound from the studio
Starbucks is one of the key supporters of the Product (RED) campaign to raise funds to help those living HIV and AIDS in Africa, and The Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria. The coffee company began a partnership with (RED) in 2008 with the concept, “Your handcrafted beverage an agent of change”. The Starbucks campaign includes donations from proceeds of handcrafted drinks, coffee cards, specially designed mugs and tumblers.
Mophie powerstation (PRODUCT) RED is reliable power, capable of quickly charging virtually any USB device in the world, including the iPad and other power-hungry tablets with ease.
With well known and popular brands like Apple, Starbucks, Morphie, Theory, and beats by dr. dre, you are bound to find that perfect gift.
So, gift someone you love and tell them how this gift will also help those in need.
Starbucks won’t be the only go-to hot-spot for quick Wi-Fi action for long. Fashionistas can rejoice, haute fashion house Saks Fifth Avenue has announced that Wi-Fi service from AT&T is coming to all 44 locations across the United States. This is actually the culmination of a gradual roll-out that began last November at the original store in New York City. Now, you’ll be able to connect at any location – Saks suggests that you use it to view their FashionFix app, which introduces you to even more fashions and features an event calendar for all the store locations.
What do you think, can you see yourself breaking out the laptop at Saks?
