Bono, Rockstar Philanthropist By Treg Julander

May 21, 2018

Bono, the charismatic frontman for the rock band U2, is one of the world's best-known philanthropic performers and was named the most politically effective celebrity of all time by the National Journal. In addition to writing songs steeped in social and political themes as the band’s primary lyricist, Bono has been instrumental in founding and supporting several causes aimed at pursuing global humanitarian relief. Prominent among these efforts is the ONE Campaign, an international, non-profit, advocacy organization that fights extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa, and Product Red, a brand licensed to partner companies that raises money for the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, Tuberculosis, and Malaria.
