NEW YORK, Aug. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- quip, an oral health company that makes oral care more simple and accessible,

today announced the availability of their special edition (RED) electric toothbrush to help get back to your routine at the end of the summer and give back. For every (quip)RED electric toothbrush purchased, 15% of the proceeds will be donated to the AIDS fight.

The proceeds from each purchase will support Global Fund programs that deliver HIV testing, treatment, prevention, counseling and care services, with 100% of the money raised going directly to programs on the ground.

"At quip, we've designed an electric toothbrush that makes better brushing an intuitive part of your everyday routine. With (quip)RED, we want to make donating to the fight against AIDS just as simple as brushing your teeth," says Simon Enever, CEO of quip. "These small actions add up to make a real difference and we're proud to be able to partner with (RED) and have quip join the line-up of stylish, design-led products that raise money to fight this disease.

(quip)RED is the latest from quip's line of American Dental Association approved electric toothbrushes which encourage better brushing habits. The brushes guide users through a thorough two minute clean using sensitive vibrating bristles that pulse every 30-seconds to cover the entirety of the mouth. quip also offers a subscription service on a dentist recommended basis for brush heads and toothpaste, and provides incentives for timely dental check ups.

"We are extremely honored that quip has brought their innovative and exquisite design to the AIDS fight. As we brush for two minutes, it is important to know that every two minutes a teen becomes infected with HIV. This means there is still plenty of work to be done and together we can win this fight," said Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED).

The (quip)RED toothbrush will cost $40 and will be available to purchase at getquip.com/red
