christmas wishlists/ideas 01: project (red)

it's december! time to start decorating the trees, have a think about the year that has passed, and of course shop around for presents! to help those (& myself) having trouble finding gifts, i'll be featuring an item each day on the run up to christmas. much as i love that jaeger lecoultre watch and goyard trunk, i'll be featuring gift ideas that are hopefully within budget for most. for those hoping to avoid the crowds, i'll be attaching links to online shops if i can find them.

today is also world aids day. while thinking about presents for the loved ones, think also for the unfortunate ones suffering from aids in africa. footballer didier drogba fronts the latest campaign for nike, where profits from the sales of nike (red) laces will be used to fight aids in africa.

launching on dec 1st, the (red) laces will be available on nikestores.com. it's a great stocking filler, with an even greater motive and story behind it. i know i will be most happy to receive it. football unites people. nike and project (red) are hoping to bring people in africa together through the unifying language of football, and educate them about hiv/aids awareness and prevention.

for those wanting to go the extra mile, how about a pair of the limited edition converse x united bamboo project (red) sneakers? 10% from the wholesale price of the sneakers will go towards the global fund to fight aids, tuberculosis and malaria. the sneakers retails for US$100 and is available on converse.com.

and paying for the laces and sneakers, and all your other shopping items, with your project (red) american express card helps the charity to grow their funds. american express donates 1% of all your spending to this charitable cause. being able to help just by going about with your daily life, is a wonderful thing. i've got mine, find out if the card is available where you live and apply for one at americanexpress.com.

better to give than to receive huh. happy shopping!
