Jimmy John's and (RED) have teamed up in the month of June to support the fight against AIDS.
The gourmet sandwich restaurant chain has donated $100,000 to EAT (RED) SAVE LIVES, led by Chef Mario Batali.
Jimmy John's is not alone -- according to the (RED) website, Hello Fresh is offering (RED) meal kits -- Blaze Fast-Fire'd Pizza, Luke's Lobster and Forkable have all collaborated to offer special (RED) meals and donate to the cause this June.
Just 30 cents a day can provide one day of HIV/AIDS medication in sub-Saharan Africa and in nearly 10 years since (RED)'s launch, $465 million has been raised to support The Global Fund's work. That money has been used to finance HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Rwanda, Kenya, South Africa, Swaziland, Lesotho, Tanzania and Zambia -- impacting more than 90 million people.
