    As of October 1, 2009, with any Bugaboo purchase, Bugaboo will contribute
1% of their total revenue to the Global Fund to help fund AIDS programs in
Africa with an emphasis on the health of women and children. The funds support
programs that are designed by each country based on their unique needs and
that often include delivery of lifesaving antiretroviral treatment and support
for treatment to help prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child.
(RED) was founded in 2006 to engage the private sector in raising awareness
and funds for the Global Fund, to help eliminate AIDS in Africa.

    Parents who choose Bugaboo are not only choosing a well designed
performance stroller but they will also be making a conscious decision to
support the Global Fund's AIDS grants in Africa. Whether they purchase from
the existing Bugaboo range, or display their support by choosing from the
(BUGABOO)(RED) Special Collection, their purchase ultimately benefits those
affected by HIV and AIDS in Africa, including millions of mothers and
children.

    Available worldwide at launch, the (BUGABOO)(RED) Special Collection
includes a Bugaboo Cameleon denim stroller featuring a unique black matte
frame, dark denim fabric and a distinctive red brake handle. Like the standard
Bugaboo Cameleon model, this (BUGABOO)(RED) Cameleon is a multi-terrain,
infant-to-toddler stroller featuring an adjustable handlebar and swivel wheel
suspension allowing for easy navigation and maximum comfort for parent and
child.

    The (BUGABOO)(RED) Special Collection also includes a white leather
(BUGABOO)(RED) Bag. The multipurpose modern carryall for adults is practical
and stylish. The bag includes a changing mat, numerous compartments and
removable food and drink containers, making it suitable for any situation,
from play dates to an afternoon meeting. The sleek design and functional
interior make the (BUGABOO)(RED) Bag a permanent accessory for parents and
non-parents alike.

    "We are proud to announce our partnership with (RED) and join forces with
other iconic brands to generate funds and awareness to help eliminate AIDS in
Africa. Through our partnership with (RED), Bugaboo along with our consumers
can play a role in the fight against AIDS in Africa and help reduce mother to
child transmission of the disease. Now when you go with Bugaboo, you can make
good things happen. " Madeleen Klaasen, Chief Marketing Officer of Bugaboo
International

    "Bugaboo products are known for their quality and design and we are
delighted that they have created an exclusive range as part of the (RED)
partnership. The fact that they are contributing 1% of all revenue across
their entire range to the Global Fund means that this partnership goes even
further to help combat HIV transmission between mothers and children." Susan
Smith Ellis, CEO of (RED).

    Bugaboo is the only (RED) partner to contribute a percentage of all
revenue across its entire product range to help in the fight against AIDS in
Africa. Launched in 1999, Bugaboo is renowned for its innovative and
groundbreaking designs. As the first mobility design brand to partner with
(RED), Bugaboo encapsulates the freedom to move for everyone, be it mothers
and children locally, or mothers and children in Africa.
