TED Prize

1 Jun, 2005

Bono is awarded the prize and given the means to further his wishes through the organization:

I wish for you to help build a social movement of more than 1 MILLION American activists for Africa. I wish to tell people ONE BILLION times about ONE, with as much of this as possible before the G8 Africa Summit in July 2005. I wish for you to show the power of information — its power to rewrite the rules and to transform lives — by connecting every hospital, health clinic, and school in one African country, Ethiopia, to the Internet.
