ABSTRACT Aidspan is passing on to our readers some information about holiday purchases that can support HIV/AIDS awareness, programmes, and organisations. We make special mention of Product (RED), the ground-breaking private-sector partnership with the Global Fund that has raised more than $500 million so far for Global Fund grants through consumer purchases.
Creditcards.com has created a new HIV/AIDS donation guide that offers tips on donating credit card rewards to a number of HIV organizations directly. As a public service, Aidspan and the GFO are passing this information on, should any of our readers wish to make donations to these organizations in lieu of gifts over the festive season.
Creditcards.com also says: “Our ‘Guide to donating to HIV/AIDS awareness’ also provides readers with information about where their purchases can further support AIDS efforts. We provide a list of businesses where consumers can donate simply by making a purchase, like Amazon and Starbucks, so making a difference is as easy as enjoying a fresh cup of coffee.”
The guide includes, notably, Product (RED), the pioneering private sector partnership with the Global Fund that has raised more than $500 million so far for Global Fund grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia.
Another channel is JustGiving, where you can use your American Express points to donate.
