Super Bowl Downloads of U2 Single to Fund HIV/AIDS Fight

Downloads of the new single “Invisible” by U2 will support (RED), the charity lead singer Bono co-founded to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa, the International Business Times reports. The single will be free on iTunes for 24 hours after its debut on a Super Bowl commercial on Sunday, February 2. Bank of America will donate a dollar for each of the first 2 million downloads, but it has pledged to give (RED) a total of $10 million. The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation also has pledged $10 million. German software company SAP has pledged $1 million, as has the Motsepe family, a wealthy mining leader in South Africa.

I think it's great that organizations are raising money for HIV/AIDS in Africa. However, here in the states there is a shortage of funds for the State MADAP Programs which helps those here in the good Ole USA get the medications they need to keep alive. The gov't isn't providing enough funds and there are waiting lists for these programs.
