Tuesday (December 1) marks the beginning of a brand-new month, but it's also a significant milestone as the world continues to bring forth awareness and attention in honor of World AIDS Day 2015.
As we mark another year of progress in the fight against AIDS, iHeartRadio has decided to partner with the (RED) movement to bring attention to one of the most important causes around. We're not the only ones helping to make some noise either. As always, U2 frontman Bono is on the cause as well as Jimmy Kimmel and some of your favorite chart toppers around. Take a look below for the full list of stars that are helping to support World AIDS Day 2015.
In honor of all the progress that the world has made in the battle against AIDS, iHeartRadio is bringing awareness to our followers by teaming up with the (RED) campaign for the month of December. iHeartRadio will be called iHeart(RED) as of December 1.
Jimmy Kimmel's (SHOPATHON)RED
Kimmel is dedicated his Tuesday night episode to the campaign alongside his co-host for the evening Olivia Wilde. Not only will the duo introduce some pretty unique experiences to donors, but the evening will also feature appearances from Tom Brady and Shaquille O'Neal. While Tom will gift someone with a lesson in passing a football, Shaq will take a photo with the winner for a 2016 holiday card. The Killers will also be on-site for a performance. Additional experiences will be available after donating on Omaze.com/RED.
"Even though red is the color of emergency, there's a sort of optimism about the whole campaign and a kind of defiant humor. We have always had that, but the (SHOPATHON) will really take it to another new level," said Bono, who founded the (RED) concept in 2006.
