This charity could not be for a better cause and it is being sponsored by Apple and famous stars such as Bono and Oprah.
Implications - Both Oprah Winfrey and Bono took to the streets of Chicago, USA, to promote new Product Red items; from clothing and accessories to gadgets and gizmos. One of the Product Red items featured was the special-edition iPod that will donate money to The Global Fund which is a charity that helps to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria in Africa.
