On ONE's 10th Anniversary, Bono Narrates New Call for Membership

@U2, May 22, 2014

It was 10 years ago this month -- May 16, 2004, to be precise -- that Bono and others launched the ONE Campaign. ONE has been celebrating its 10th anniversary this month with a series of articles, videos and features about its progress in fighting extreme poverty -- and that series includes a new video published today with narration by Bono.

He talks about how the number of people on earth living in extreme poverty has been cut in half over the past couple decades, and ends the video with a call for more members to join the effort. As of this moment, ONE's home page says there are almost 4.4 million members worldwide.

The new video is featured on ONE's 10 Years website, but they haven't shared it on YouTube yet ... so we'll have to embed this version uploaded by Gavin P.
