In addition to auctioning doodles created by George Clooney, Elvis Costello and Anton Corbijn, the African Well Fund is also auctioning a print signed by Bono to benefit the Build a Well Fund for Bono’s Birthday project in Burkina Faso. The auctions will run May 5-12 on eBay.
Bono signed the print, which is a reproduction of an original gouache painting by Azalea Millet of Bono holding an African child, prior to the U2 360 show in Denver last year. The 11×17 print is on white medium glossy paper and includes the Bono quote, “This is our moment to stand up for what is right.”
This is the third Bono-signed print AWF has auctioned. Bono Street Team founder Dion Simte donated each of the signed prints.
The 10th Annual Build a Well for Bono’s Birthday fundraiser is benefiting a water, sanitation and hygiene project in Burkina Faso that will be implemented by African Well Fund partner Africare and aims to create a healthy environment for 257 schoolchildren.
