Elton will comission articles, features, and editorials in the special World Aids Day edition. Highlighting the subject of HIV and AIDS in an effort to increae awareness. All circulation revenue from the issue will be donated to Elton’s AIDS Foundation.
Bono got to guest-edit for The Independent back in 2006. The issue focused on AIDS in Africa, and increased circulation by 70 thousand copies.
Elton’s got his work cut out, but at least is giving back in ways not too many “Stars” find the time nor the cause to contribute.
