Can people please give me some quotes that describe Bono's humanitarian efforts and/or other quotes that solidify his charitable efforts (i.e. EDUN, ONE, benefit concerts)?

And, if possible, cite the quote?

Please and Thank you!

Maybe some of these

* I think that politicians are attracted at first by the celebrity but once they meet him, they find that he is outstandingly capable. ~ Jeffrey Sachs, Head Economist for the UN Millenium Development Goals. (1999)

* You have made people listen. You have made people care, and you have taught us that whether we are poor or prosperous, we have only one world to share. You have taught young people that they do have the power to change the world. ~ Kofi Annan, UN Secretary General, to Bono. (November 1999)

* For being shrewd about doing good, for rewiring politics and re-engineering justice, for making mercy smarter and hope strategic and then daring the rest of us to follow, Bono is Time's Person of the Year. ~ Time Magazine (2005)

More here but no sources: http://boycottliberalism.com/Bono.htm

And Wikipedia has an article on Bono with a section on his humanitarian work: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bono and last but not least, using Google (bono quotes) will probably get you even more ;^)

(Why do I feel like I just did someones homework for them? ;-)

Haha.

Not really homework, more like you helped out with some concrete details for an essay :]

google 'bono ted speech' or bono presidential prayer breakfast' and watch the vid clips... the ted speech is long, but so worth it. this speech is what changed about 20 of us at the u2.com boards and we all became involved in teh one campaigns because of it.
