We dig the colors available now, but when we learned that Apple will release a red iPhone in the very near future, we couldn’t help but cheer. Even better, they’re doing it for an amazing cause.
You may have remembered the t-shirts making quite a splash back in the day, but (RED) has continuously been making a huge impact in the world. The charity, which helps fund HIV/AIDS programs that offer both medicine and education, has had a partnership with Apple for some time, but never before have they been so visible.
Keep in mind, this isn’t just a cute case — the phone itself is definitely a brilliant shade of red.
The red iPhone 7 and iPhone 7 Plus will both help support the cause, and make sure that awareness regarding HIV and AIDS is readily available. So not only will you have a nice looking phone, but you’ll also help make a difference.
Launched in 2006, (RED) has raised over $465 million so far — and it’s been figured that $130 million of that was based on their long partnership with Apple. With this money they’ve already seen a big impact. According to their statistics, 2005 saw a little over 1,200 babies born with HIV. Today, that number has dwindled down to 400, based on improved education and treatment.
We have a feeling these red phones are going to fly off the shelves when they’re released on March 24th.
