"We genuinely believed it was a record about being fans of rock-and-roll. Maybe we didn't understand how successful we were and that it looked like we were hanging out with these guys so, by association, that we were one of the greats."

-- Bono, on Rattle and Hum

12th Annual AWF Build A Well For Bono's Birthday Kicks Off

@U2, April 01, 2014
By: Sherry Lawrence


With 40 days to go before Bono's 54th birthday on May 10, the African Well Fund has kicked off its annual "Build A Well" campaign. According to the AWF site, this year's "Invisible"-inspired theme, "there is no them, there's only us" will "benefit a community-based water and sanitation project in the Ebo municipality of the Kwanza Sul Province in Angola. The project aims to increase access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation for more than 12,000 people living in these communities."

As in previous years once a donation is made, fans are encouraged to sign the birthday card. All well wishes will be conveyed to Bono at the conclusion of the "Build A Well For Bono's Birthday" campaign.

Over the past 11 years, fans have generously donated over $225,000 for Bono's birthday.
