Bono has often been deemed one of the “most influential” people in our society because of his overwhelming philanthropic work. His entrance into charity work began in the 1980’s with his participation in the Conspiracy Of Hope tour for Amnesty International. He has been a huge advocate for human rights, proper economics, AIDS research and awareness, fighting poverty, and quite a bit more. He has been nominated on three separate occasions for the Nobel Peace Prize on account of his tireless efforts.
