$2 billion is not $3 billion

Dr. Alex Coutinho, the Executive Director of TASO, the charity that Get Up Off Your Knees will benefit, recently received the UN Association's Global Humanitarian Award. Bono was in NY at the UNA-USA Global Leadership Awards Dinner to present it.

If you are concerned about AIDS in Africa and you live in the USA, the week of Oct 13 would be a good time to call your Senators (and Majority Leader Bill Frist) about the Durbin amendment to the Iraq Supplemental. (DATA has even set up a toll-free number, 1-877-HOPE-USA, for you.)

The Presbyterians will tell you exactly how to do this, as will Church World Service.
