Have you heard about Bono's (RED) campaign? The campaign has partnered with Motorolla, American Express, Gap, Armani, Converse & Apple's Ipod. 50% of the profits go to The Global Fund to fight Aids, Tuberculosis & Malaria. From what I understand, the Gap products (not sure about the others) are made in Africa. I've been skeptical about the Gap in the past, but it seems like this clothing is made by people who will greatly benefit from the profits.

What do y'all think?

I banned all Gap/BananaRepublic/OldNavy clothes for a while due to their infractions with sweatshops and irresponsible practices as a company. However, from the research I have been able to do, they have really shaped up as a company over the last few years. I am very glad as I really love their stuff and enjoy feeling free to buy it again.
I don't know but I caught 5 minutes of Oprah where she was shopping at the Gap with Bono saying stuff like, "Oh, I can where that when I walk my dogs. I'll take 6."

But it did peak my interest, I will have to check it out.
sounds like a good thing...
