"We wanted to reach as many people as possible with our campaign, from concert fans and sports lovers to our own team at Live Nation," said Michael Rapino, president and chief executive officer of Live Nation Entertainment. "We were able to help raise awareness about this global issue by creating nearly 100 million impressions and providing information about the significant work that (RED) TM does to support The Global Fund. We are happy we could also raise more than $130,000 to help to eradicate HIV and AIDS around the world."  

One hundred percent of all donations made by ticket purchasers, Live Nation Entertainment and its employees went directly to the Global Fund. These monies will go towards helping finance programs which provide prevention, treatment, counseling, and HIV testing and care services in Africa.

"Live Nation Entertainment is the leader in the live entertainment industry and we are so thrilled that they engaged their employees and customers to help (RED) TM raise money and awareness to fight for the end of AIDS. Enormous thanks to everyone who so generously supported this campaign. This is the first time (RED) TM and Live Nation have worked together, and we are excited to join forces again in the future," said Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED) TM.

To date, (RED) TM has generated more than $240 million for the Global Fund to fight AIDS, Tuberculosis and Malaria to support HIV/AIDS grants in Ghana, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda, South Africa, Swaziland, Tanzania and Zambia. Global Fund grants that (RED) TM supports have impacted more than 14 million people.
