I've always thought this guy looks like Robin Williams.

If only I would have been born 30 years ago and lived in Ireland.

Bono - Paul David Hewson, known by his stage name Bono, is an Irish singer, musician, venture capitalist and humanitarian best known for being the main vocalist of the Dublin-based rock band U2. Wikipedia

Bono- MAKE POVERTY HISTORY. The next time someone makes the 'don't fund foreign aid', remind them how much more disparately poor many countries are and how relatively small amounts will go a long way to stabilize whole regions. Forgive the Debt....

Make poverty history. Bono is a rockstar in the music world and the nonprofit world. ONE Campaign

Bono… know he's technically Irish, but hey, the whole country used be part of the UK, so there. :)

Bono - is an Irish singer, musician, venture capitalist, businessman and activist. Lives out humanitarian aid through his own life, leads by example, not just words!!! #inspires #manofhonor

    Must be nice to know him so well that you know his true intentions. More power to ya. Regardless, at least he gives!

    @Emily Ellis - so should we ALL live in poverty? Then who will be willing to help those in need through financial means (which is what is needed most to overcome poverty)?! How about the motto: "make all you can, save all you can, GIVE all you can"? If one is willing to work hard (as he has done for 20+ years) then who are WE to judge when and how he uses his money?

    I don't believe that ANYONE should live in poverty OR extreme wealth. If we lived in a meritocracy or a resource-based economy, we wouldn't have the staggering disparities of wealth which is caused by the greed of "The Market" which no government controls.

    I think that it's excellent for individuals to give to those less fortunate.... but somebody like Bono should not be cannonized for it.

Bono and Bono's dad. "Americans, Irish people, are good at charity. We like to give, and we give a lot, even those who can't afford it. But justice is a higher standard." Bono (I could find enlightened quotes by this man all day long and into tomorrow.)

A MUST SEE- U2 live concert in Europe -- Ireland or Italy, preferred! :) Bono from U2
