Potential consumers(like me) of RED products should care about how much is going to the charity, and how much is going to the company. When I donate to a charity, I look at the overhead rates of the charity, for example, and avoid those with high overhead. I want to know not only that I am "helping", but how much I am helping.
You have a recourse - don't buy RED products if you think the overheads are too high.

...and you cannot claim that apple is hiding this information from you here. if they did, this thread probably wouldn't exist. as anitram said, and as I have been saying before in this thread: if you think apple is being stingy and that their strategy is too palpable and rotten, then just don't buy their iPods. it's your decision, just like it's apple's decision how much they want to donate to the red campaign.

Fine - I can make a decision whether or not to buy the ipod, but I can also discuss why I am not buying one or anything else related to the topic. This is after all, a discussion board.
