Bono Launches T-shirt Line For Africa
Rocker and humanitarian BONO is hoping to save lives in Lesotho, Africa by selling T-shirts. The U2 star has recruited celebrities like LINDSAY LOHAN, NAOMI WATTS, ROSARIO DAWSON, GARY OLDMAN and KATE BOSWORTH among others to model the new ONE poverty campaign shirts in print ads, shot by pal and former model HELENA CHRISTENSEN. The T-shirts, which were designed by Bono's wife ALI HEWSON for the couple's Nude clothing label, are all being manufactured at a factory in Lesotho, where HIV and AIDS is rife. The Irish rocker hopes that jobs his new T-shirt line creates will help improve conditions and the quality of life for thousands of struggling Africans. He says, "The money spent on this T-shirt could save a life."
