      Original post

      Last summer, because of concerts and campaigning around the globe, world leaders made some big promises on aid and debt cancellation. These promises could save millions of lives. Everyone knows that politicians love to sign cheques, but they're less keen on cashing them...

      Every day, 3,000 people are dying because of a mosquito bite - malaria, a treatable, preventable disease. Our generation can put an end to the extreme, stupid poverty which means that this can happen. Your voice makes all the difference to how seriously our governments take this... whether they do what they promised. And when they do the right thing... things do change. Because of debt cancellation for Uganda, twice as many children are going to school. Because of money committed to fighting AIDS, over half a million Africans are alive thanks to life-saving HIV drugs.

      LIVE 8 was just one memorable day. We need your voice for much longer to make sure it's remembered not just for the music, but for the numerous lives it helped save. Please stay in touch.

      Thanks, Bono

          Thanks for staying in touch with LIVE8 !

            Yep, this forum needs to keep going in some form.

              This thread and the link helped to answer my question about what happened to the money raised. It would also be helpful to see visual images of the impact on peoples' lives in the countries targeted.
