    Build A Well For Bono's Birthday with AWF


    This Friday, 10th May is Bono's birthday & here is a chance to join a group of dedicated fans in celebrating our singer's 53rd by getting involved in a great project...


    Formed in October 2002 by a group of U2 fans inspired by a visit there by Bono, African Well Fund is a registered non-profit organization dedicated to raising funds for building and maintaining wells in Africa. 
    Struck by the relatively low cost of building a well and the enormous difference that a well can make in the life of a village, they were convinced that raising the money to build a well was an easily achievable goal. 
    Each year U2 fans are invited to help Africare 'build a well for Bono's birthday', and to date have raised $220,000  to fund the construction of clean water and sanitation projects, that are benefiting more than 56,000 people in Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Liberia, Uganda and Zimbabwe.
    This years fundraiser specifically aims to raise $10,000 (of which they have raised 25% to date), to fully fund the Mali Dibaro School WASH Project, a $50,000 project to be implemented by Africare that will benefit over 1,800 schoolchildren and community members.
    There's no official link to Bono or U2 but if you'd like  to donate or get involved you can find out more here, and even add your birthday message, which will be included in a card that will be sent to Bono / care of Principle Management.
