Thank You, Merck, for Supporting (SHOPATHON)RED 2020!


It’s the most wonderful time of the year! (SHOPATHON)RED is back, and this year, Merck (known as MSD outside the U.S. and Canada), has come on board to make it more wonderful than ever before.

In honor of World AIDS Day on December 1st, (SHOPATHON)RED is an annual holiday shopping extravaganza, bringing together your favorite influencers and celebrities, unique interactive experiences, dozens of the hottest brands, and hundreds of gifts that give back. This year, every (SHOPATHON)RED purchase generates funds to fight two pandemics: AIDS and COVID-19.

We’re so grateful to Merck for supporting (SHOPATHON)RED 2020 and helping us engage even more holiday shoppers in the fight to strengthen global health systems.

Starting today, you can explore some of (RED)’s life-saving gifts in our first-ever virtual pop-up shop, supported by Merck, on Snapchat. Tap or scan the Snapcode to open the portal in your Snapchat app. Be sure to look (and tap) around the whole virtual store—there are lots of exciting products you won’t want to miss. When you purchase these unbeatable gifts on, you help fight pandemics.

Merck has been a (RED)-supporter for over a year now, but their commitment to helping fight global health threats caused by infectious disease goes back more than a century.

When AIDS was first discovered in the mid-1980s, Merck scientists sprung into action with clinical HIV research, and this year, in the midst of COVID-19, they’ve contributed their expertise to advancing COVID-19 research. Outside of the lab, Merck has worked tirelessly to expand access to medicines, strengthen health systems, and support underserved and vulnerable communities.

Thank you, Merck, for helping spread (SHOPATHON) RED cheer this holiday season!
