Our donors received this note from Bono after the 2007 Campaign:

Well, Well, Well, Well, Well,
Well And Well done etc.

I think its my favourite birthday gift every year… and this year I wanted to thank you – music is pouring out of the U2 ers at the minute and despite what’s happening out there in a wild wild world I am so happy to be alive enough to give it a good kickin.

There’s no business like shoe business

For the sixth year in a row, the African Well Fund is pleased to announce plans for a fundraising drive to " Build a Well for Bono's Birthday ".

From March 17th through May 10th, the African Well Fund invites U2 fans and others who are inspired by Bono's tireless activism on behalf of Africa to make a donation in honor of Bono's birthday on May 10th. Your donation in the amount of $100, $75, $40, or whatever you can afford, will go a long way in helping to provide clean water for the people of Africa.

Donations from the five previous campaigns totaled over $110,000 and have been used by our partner Africare to fund well projects in Uganda, Ethiopia, Angola and Zimbabwe. Check the AWF Wells page for more information on our projects. During 2006, two African Well Fund members traveled to Africa to see wells built by previous birthday fundraisers. You can see video from the trip at or read the trip blog from AWF's visit to Africa for more information.
