U2 rocker Bono is having one of his guitars auctioned as an attempt to benefit Brazil's Zero Hunger campaign. Agencia Brasil, the government's official news agency said on Monday Feb 20th, 2006.
The guitar will be donated to the government after Bono's Feb.20-21 concerts in Sao Paulo's huge Morumbi soccer stadium. It will then be auctioned to collect funds for the program which goal is to ensure all Brazilians have three meals a day by the end of President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva's presidential term Dec. 31.
In fact, the presidential press office has yet know when nor how the auction will take place.
