(RED)

The Official 2018 Charity Partner of Wanderlust

 

Wanderlust is proud to be a partner of (RED) in the fight to end AIDS.

In 2018, for every purchase of a Wanderlust 108 ticket, $1.08 of the retail price will go to The Global Fund to fight AIDS with (RED). That donation is enough to provide 5+ days of life-saving HIV medication. Additionally, for every purchase of WAN(DER)LUST branded products, 20% of the retail price will go to that same Global Fund. Every purchase of a WAN(DER)LUST Package could provide 80+ days of life-saving HIV medication.

100% of funds raised goes towards HIV/AIDS community programs and services in prevention, treatment, counseling, testing and care, with no overhead taken. Your support will provide those in need with preventing, treatment, counseling, HIV testing, and care services.

Join us and (RED) in the fight for a world without AIDS.

ABOUT (RED)

(RED) was founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver to harness the power of people and companies to help fight AIDS.

(RED) partners with the world’s most iconic brands that contribute up to 50% of profits from (RED)-branded goods and services to The Global Fund.

(RED) supports The Global Fund HIV/AIDS grants in eight countries with a goal of virtually eliminating transmission of the virus from moms to their babies. The Global Fund, the recipient of (RED) funds, is a 21st century organization designed to accelerate the end of AIDS as an epidemic.

As a partnership between governments, civil society, the private sector, and people affected by the diseases, The Global Fund mobilizes and invests nearly US $4 billion a year to support programs run by local experts in more than 140 countries. By challenging barriers and embracing innovative approaches, partners are working together to end these epidemics.

Every day 400 babies are born with HIV. Together we can get that number back down to ZERO.

WHY IT MATTERS

Since its discovery in 1981, 76 million people have become infected with HIV and 35 million have died from AIDS related illnesses. There are roughly 37 million people living with HIV globally, more than 25 million of whom are living in subSaharan Africa. Women and girls account for 51% of this population, with 18.6 million women and girls living with HIV globally—that’s more than the population of the Netherlands.

In 2016, 19.5 million people were accessing life-saving antiretroviral treatment (ARVs), up from 17 million on treatment in 2015. This means that for the first time ever, more than half (53%) of all people living with HIV are on treatment.

This includes pregnant mothers, who can pass HIV on to their babies at any time during pregnancy, labor, delivery, and breastfeeding. When a pregnant mother is given the appropriate medication, the risk that she’ll pass it on is reduced to almost zero.

Here’s where we come in: The money earned from (RED) products go to The Global Fund, which donates ALL of its contributions to ensure that mothers, fathers, children, and all of those affected with AIDS receive the necessary treatment. This one pill, which costs as little as 30 cents, can help someone with HIV stay alive and healthy. The more you support (RED) partners, the more people survive.

Together we can help deliver an AIDS FREE GENERATION.

(RED) turns possibility into reality,

Consumers & businesses into lifesavers,

And global influencers into inspired voices.
