Shazam, the world’s leading mobile discovery provider, is supporting World AIDS Day again this year.
Today, over 80 landmarks around the world will turn RED - including the Empire State Building, Sydney Opera House, the London Eye and Table Mountain – and Shazam is showing its support by turning its App listening screen RED for iPhone’s and iPod touches.
You can do your bit too – here’s how:
On iTunes, download the (SHAZAM)RED App. The Shazam (PRODUCT)RED™ Special Edition App harnesses the enhanced technology of the iPhone 4; plus enables more discovery, sharing and buying of music than ever before. It’s packed with great features and Shazam contributes 20% of the price to the Global Fund to fund HIV/AIDS programs in Africa.
On Facebook, change your profile picture to a (2015)RED image and post the following message:
Today is World AIDS Day. Last year nearly ½ million babies were born with HIV. By 2015, that number could be zero. A possibility we can make a reality. Change your profile picture to a (2015)RED image & help us turn Facebook (RED) today!
To do this go to the ‘Turn Facebook (RED)’ tab on (RED)’s Facebook page and select an image:
On Twitter, tweet one of the (2015)RED messages using #turnred:
It’s World AIDS Day @joinred fact: 430,000 babies born with HIV last yr. By 2015 that could be 0.
