Win Tickets to Watch Brazil take on Ireland at The Emirates Stadium
(RED), the brand created by Bono and Bobby Shriver to help eliminate AIDS in Africa, is giving 10 lucky football fans the chance to win a pair of tickets to the Brazil vs. Republic of Ireland match on Tuesday 2nd March 2010.
There are 33 million people worldwide who live with HIV/AIDS. Sub-Saharan Africa has just over 10 per cent of the world's population, but is home to more than 67 per cent of all people living with HIV. It costs around 20p a day to fund the antiretroviral medicine (ARV) needed to keep someone with HIV in Africa alive. Still, more than 70% of the people in sub-Saharan Africa live on less than two dollars a day and cannot afford this medicine. Every day an estimated 3,800 men, women and children die in sub-Saharan Africa from AIDS and yet it is a preventable and treatable disease.
(RED) works with the world's most iconic brands, such as Apple, GAP, Starbucks, Dell and Nike, to make unique (PRODUCT)RED¿ branded products. Every time you choose to buy (RED), the company who makes the product will send a portion of the profits directly to the Global Fund to fight AIDS in Africa. To date, (RED) has generated over $140 million dollars for the Global Fund and has helped impact more than 5 million people.
(RED)'s most recent partnership with Nike is using the power of sport to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa with the 'Lace Up. Save Lives' partnership.
Kicking off at 8pm, this game will see the Emirates Stadium turn (RED). Players from both teams will show their support on the night by wearing NIKE (PRODUCT)RED laces in their boots and the goal nets will be red for the match.
