…Spiders give you AIDS?

AIDS Spider

If you’re arachnaphobic, this image might push you over the edge, but the French are hoping that it will keep you from having risky (unprotected) sex and thus, contracting AIDS. She doesn’t seem to mind though.

…Light to Unite helps raise AIDS awareness?


Light to Unite is an annual initiative put on by Bristol-Myers Squibb in cooperation with the National AIDS Fund to bring awareness to the continued fight against AIDS. BMS donated $1 for each of the first 100,000 candles that were lit, and since then, support has swelled to over one million candles. So light a candle for the cause and show your support, the world needs it.

…Red Apples taste much better?

Apple Store

Today, Apple released the iPod nano (PRODUCT) RED special edition of their ubiquitous music player. It’s a new color for the iPod nano product line, but what makes this one unique is that for every player sold, Apple will give $10 of the purchase price to the Global Fund to help fight AIDS in Africa. It’s a cool concept; because the player won’t cost any more than the standard 4GB nano (though I hear the fixed pricing is part of the whole RED agreement), and you can give something back when you get something for yourself. (RED) is the pet project of Bono (and Apple does love Bono), with the idea being you now have a choice about what your purchases can do for others. This is a definite win-win situation, so if you’ve been putting off purchasing that new iPod, now may be the time.
