‘Tis The Season: Apple And Starbucks Partner With (RED) To Donate Gift Card Proceeds Towards AIDS Research

‘Tis The Season: Apple And Starbucks Partner With (RED) To Donate Gift Card Proceeds Towards AIDS Research

Apple and Starbucks have parted with (RED) to help give a little back this holiday season. Buy a $15 iTunes + $15 Starbucks gift card combo online, and both companies will donate 5% of proceeds to help fund AIDS research.

(RED) has been a longtime partner with Apple. If you buy a red colored iPod from Apple, a small percentage of the sale also goes towards the fight to end AIDS. You can order a holiday gift card basket from Apple, Starbucks and (RED) now.

Give a gift that gives back this holiday season with Starbucks iTunes (RED)™ eGift basket. You can send loved ones a thoughtful gift of two digital eGifts—$15 eGift to Starbucks and $15 eGift to iTunes—for $30. Plus, for every gift sold, Starbucks and iTunes will together contribute 5% of the purchase price to the Global Fund to help deliver an AIDS free generation by 2015. With the convenience of a Starbucks Card, Starbucks Card eGifts can be used for purchases in-store at participating company-owned and licensed stores in the U.S. and online.

All eGift basket orders can be placed on this website. Sounds like a good stocking stuffer!

    Why is Starbucks giving money to (RED)? I thought they were already a non-profit organisation…at least that’s what they tell HMRC.
