Bono Paints America (RED)

13 Oct 2006
Bono has been in the US this week preparing for today's launch of (RED).

Bono and Oprah stopped traffic in Chicago yesterday as they went shopping for (RED) goodies on Michigan Avenue. Along for the ride were (RED) supporters Kanye West, Penelope Cruz and Christy Turlington.

Before returning to New York for today's official (RED) launch, Bono and Christy bumped into none other than President Bush at Chicago's O'Hare airport. The pair were invited on board Air Force One for an impromptu meeting, where, according to DATA, Bono thanked the President for his work in the fight against AIDS and lobbied for an increase in U.S. funding to the Global Fund to Fight AIDS, TB and Malaria.

Today will see the official launch of (RED) in the US - with Apple adding its name to the list of companies already signed up. Check out Joinred.com for further updates.
