I truly feel for those with the deadly virus.
You could always donate to African AIDS related charities if you were that keen to help. No limit on donation amounts...
Why even make this thread? People these days, if you want to donate do it.
If you would like to support the cause, please PM me and I can share some details on how to get truly involved.
Don't get me wrong, every little bit helps and I buy the RED accessories as well, but they're just extra, minuscule donations on top of the main support.
I guess it's a WIN WIN. They get a donation and you get the latest in iPhone.
This is the best rationalization for an unneeded purchase I've seen. Good job OP! Enjoy your new red phone.
Lol go ahead op convince ur self lolllll
I'm buying one cause I want a red iPhone.
You already own an iPhone 7 plus. You could probably just donate the amount of money you'll lose between selling your existing phone and buying the red one -- that'll go a much longer way than the $10 or whatever Apple donates for the project red stuff.
how much goes to the aid?
It's Product, not Project. I don't know why, but the fact that the name was goofed in the title makes this so much funnier to me.
"I'm thinking about masturbating using environmentally freebie lubricant."
"Do you mean 'environmentally friendly?'"
"Sure, sure, I just wanna save the world with my self-indulgence."
Op is trolling, hard.
Product Red sales have donated $465 million to the cause over the last 10 years, I wouldn't call that minuscule.
I was referring to the amount an individual could donate. Buying a single RED product from Apple is a minuscule donation compared to other forms of support that you could be doing.
$465 million over the course of 10 years is, actually, pretty small. It was estimated in 2015 alone that $~2.3 *billion* was needed for HIV/AIDS treatment alone. That doesn't even include research.
Again, every little bit helps, but if someone claims that they truly want to help, I hope they consider more donations other than a single RED product.
I understand your point and the need is great, but we can't underestimate $46 million per year from one campaign. My fear is that this may be the only way some choose to donate, to insinuate that this campaign is small, may discourage them from giving. I'm sure that a loss of almost half a billion dollars over ten years, would be sorely missed. If someone wants to give anything, that is good, regardless of the size of the donation or the way in which they choose to give.
Agreed. And you would probably donate more even with a small or modest donation than gets donated from the purchase of an iPhone.
Personally I don't understand why apple and celebs make a big hoohar out of this disease but not cancer, diabetes, strokes, heart disease, Ebola, Down syndrome, etc, etc, etc
With the high divorce rate in the celeb community, "sex" is everything, maybe?
I'm not saying it's to be sneered at, but unlike some of the other diseases it can be prevented.
I'd much prefer a dangerous illness charity phone
