Hooray for an Apple gift that gives! 50% of the proceeds from every ($149) special edition red iPod Nano 8 GB will go to (RED), an organization co-founded by Bono (again!), and The Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa.
Looks like this is a longstanding tradition, with Oprah promoting the nano – for a lot more $$ and with a lot less punch – back in 2006. (I actually thought the nano still looked like the old one, and was wondering why Apple was only showing pictures of the device’s screen on their website, but holy-moly, the thing has shrunk! I need to dig myself out of this cave.)
Help a sibling, parent, friend or child join the ranks of other (RED) supporters such as the beautiful Sienna Miller, Christy Turlington and Penelope Cruz, hustle over to your local Apple store, and go red.
P.S. Thanks to my friend Christine for pointing me to this cute little gadgety-gift!
