The 2nd annual drive ran throughout the month of April. The African Well Fund (AWF) solicited donations from the vast online U2 fan community. The success of this yearÂs fundraiser combined with last yearÂs brings the total amount of money contributed by this community to over $26,010.78. Also collected were over 250 ÂsignaturesÂ at the AWF website from those who donated. These birthday wishes will be sent to Bono along with acknowledgment of the total funds raised in his honor. In the coming months, we will be providing updates and pictures of the completed well projects via our website (http://www.africanwellfund.org) as BonoÂs wells are built.
Website Updates: African Well Fund is pleased to announce we are offering AWF T-shirts for sale. We are now taking orders via our website. Additionally, in the next few weeks we will be launching a new fundraiser called Â10 Miles in Her ShoesÂ. We are looking for volunteers in 10 different cities to spearhead this effort. Details will be posted soon.
Proceeds from the African Well Fund are donated to AfricareÂs well building projects in Uganda and Ethiopia. Africare is one of the leading private, non -profit charitable U.S. organizations assisting Africa. For more information please visit http://www.africare.org. The African Well Fund was founded to focus on one achievable goal: providing access to clean water. Although this yearÂs birthday fundraiser is complete, AWF accepts donations to the fund year round. The drive to provide clean water to all the people of Africa continues.
