Apple today announced Apps for (RED), a app store promotion that will see proceeds from 25 apps being donated to the Global Fund to fight AIDS.
The promotion kicks off today and runs until Sunday, December 7th. During this time, proceeds from sales of the apps and some from in-app purchases will go to the Global Fund to fight AIDS. Some developers have also created RED-inspired content for the promotion.
New content is available for GarageBand, called (GarageBand)RED Loop Pack. This features a collection of 300 new loops in a variety of genres. This content costs $0.99 until December 7th.
Alongside Apps for (RED), Apple will donate a portion of sales from Black Friday and Cyber Monday from retail and online stores. Apple’s CEO Tim Cook introduced the promotion and described the gift of life as being the most important gift that anyone can give.
He added, “For eight years, our customers have been helping fight AIDS in Africa by funding life-saving treatments which are having a profoundly positive impact. This year we are launching our biggest fundraising push yet with the participation of Apple’s retail and online stores, and some of the brightest minds in the App Store are lending their talents to the effort as well.”
