On December 7 in celebration of the money raised for Bono’s aids charity (RED), an international online sing-a-long took place in which people from 156 countries sang the Beatles anthem All You Need Is Love. They all began singing or playing at precisely 1:30pm GMT on December 7th 2009 to the same tempo. The results are astounding.
This project is the culmination of a partnership between (RED) and Starbucks that started over a year ago. Since that time, seven million daily doses of anti-retroviral AIDS medication have been distributed via the sale of (RED) products through Starbucks. Starbucks also asks users of its Love site to contribute a love drawing to their online gallery. For each drawing added — up to one million — Starbucks and (RED) will donate five cents to the Global Fund.
