Bono Raised Money to Pay for AIDS Medication and Medical Care in Africa



Bono and his wife have lent their support to African health care through the sale of T-shirts from their Edun clothing label.

Bono, the lead singer of Irish rock band U2, brought his fight against AIDS and poverty to Chicago. The rocker and his wife, Ali Hewson, visited the downtown Nordstrom store Saturday Sept 16th to promote a designer T-shirt that will raise money to pay for AIDS medication and medical care in Africa.

The shirts, emblazoned with the logo of Bono's "One" campaign against poverty, are made in Africa by Edun, a fair trade clothing label started by Bono and Hewson. The company will donate $10 for every $40 shirt sold to a fund supporting the health care of the factory workers who make the shirts.

On the "movement", Bono said he hopes to get 5 million people signed up for his anti-poverty campaign by the next presidential election.
