Make it a Beautiful Day in Africa! Help Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday!

Posted on Monday, March 29 @ 02:04:04 CEST by Macphisto

(EMediaWire.com) -- The African Well Fund will be collecting donations throughout the month of April to honor Bono's May 10th birthday. Last year, our efforts netted over $10,000. This year our goal is $15,000.

(PRWEB) March 29, 2004--The African Well Fund is pleased to announce our 2nd annual fundraising drive to “Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday”. Bono’s birthday is May 10th. Throughout the month of April, we invite U2 fans to honor and acknowledge Bono’s activism on behalf of Africa by donating to the African Well Fund.

Last year’s fundraiser was a tremendous success. The U2 fan community responded generously to our call for donations and over $10,000 was raised. The money was used by our partner Africare, to fund the building of 14 wells in Uganda. To read the full report of the well-building project, please visit our website www.africanwellfund.org.

Based on the amazing response we received last year, we have set this year’s goal at $15,000. Incredibly, last year’s amount was contributed by approximately 300 donors, a relatively small number when considering the size of the U2 fan base. Once again, we will send Bono an acknowledgement of the funds raised in his honor as well as post birthday messages collected on our website. For further details go to http://africanwellfund.org/Bono-Well-2004.html .

This year, the money raised will be used for well projects in the country of Ethiopia. Africare has informed us of the present critical need there. 100% of your donation goes directly to Africare’s village water supply program. Africare is one of the leading private, non-profit charitable U.S. organizations assisting Africa. For more information please visit www.africare.org.

Please consider donating today. Your contribution joined with the donations of others can make a significant difference in the life of an entire African village. Just $100 each from 10 U2 fans would fund a well. There are thousands of us out there! Who knows how many wells we can build!

African Well Fund is a registered non-profit 501(c)3 organization founded by U2 fans dedicated to raising funds for building and maintaining wells in Africa.
