Starbucks and Apple offering $30 gift card combo to benefit AIDS research foundation

Starbucks introduced a new Starbucks iTunes (RED) eGift basket this holiday season, with help of Apple, to give back to the world. The gift basket is complete with a $15 Starbucks gift card and $15 iTunes gift card. For every combo sold, Starbucks and Apple will donate 5 percent of each purchase (75 cents) to the Global Fund AIDS research foundation. The gift basket can be purchased on Starbuck’s website, where you can also choose to gift it directly to someone. This isn’t the first time Apple partnered with (RED), as it has launched several special edition iPods to compliment the foundation over the years. The same goes for Starbucks, which revealed today it gave $11 million to the Global Fund since December 2008. Pretty nice gift, if you ask me. Who doesn’t like music, coffee, and helping a good cause?
