Bono Teams Up With Hard Rock to Benefit Africa
courtesy Hard Rock
Bono has long been both a rocker and a philanthropist, but now through a collaboration with the Hard Rock Cafe, he’s combining the two — and being a designer to boot. The U2 frontman has just become the 25th music icon to create a charity t-shirt for Hard Rock’s Signature Series, which benefits each artist’s charity of choice. Bono’s Fish Can Fly tee, which is produced by his wife Ali Hewson’s ethical clothing line EDUN, features his own design of a fish soaring through the stars and sky. Proceeds from the shirt benefit the Wildlife Conservation Society’s Conservation Cotton Initiative, which helps African farmers escape poverty through land management education, organic cotton growing techniques, and wildlife conservation. The shirts are available in blue on a white background for women and red on black for men.
