To close out the ninth annual Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday fundraiser, the African Well Fund is auctioning a print signed by Bono prior to U2’s May 21 concert in Denver.
The signed print, which was donated by Bono Street Team founder Dion Simte, is a reproduction of the original gouache painting by Azalea Millet of Bono holding an African child from a trip to Ghana in 2002 and features Bono’s quote, “This is our moment … to stand up for what is right” from the 2005 Live8 concert. The signature reads “Bono 2011”.
The five-day print auction begins Tuesday, May 31. To place a bid, click here.
Proceeds from this auction will benefit the ninth annual Build a Well for Bono’s Fundraiser, which is raising funds for clean water and sanitation projects that will be implemented by AWF partner Africare at four girls’ schools in Benin that are supported by Angelique Kidjo’s Batonga Foundation.
