ONE on Tour with U2: The Phoenix Edition

This fan is just as excited about supporting the ONE Campaign as he is to see his favorite band! We love it!

After San Jose, we made our way south to Phoenix where U2 played shows on the Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day Weekend.  We had an awesome group of volunteers each night whose enthusiasm for ONE and recruiting new members, showed no bounds.  Okay, so they enjoyed the shows too :)

We thought we would let our volunteers tell us their most noteworthy moments:

“During both days it was amazing to see how many people came up to us to tell us that they were a ONE member and to show us their ONE bands. There were so many different kinds of bands from different events from previous years so it was very neat to see how excited they were to receive the new white ONE band we were giving out at the concert to add to their collection.

(Who knew our wristbands would become a coveted collector’s item?!)

“People travelled from all around the world to see the show, including this ONE Youth Ambassador from the Netherlands!”

“Of course there were those who had never heard of ONE, but once we gave our quick pitch on the work we do to eradicate extreme poverty and preventable disease it was nice to see how willing people were to sign our Poverty is Sexist petition and how many compliments we got as an organization about the amazing work we do.”

“I think my favorite moment was seeing all those white ONE wristbands up on the big screen during the concert–it definitely made all those hours of work worth it. It also felt really good when Bono thanked ONE members and volunteers during the show.”

“Hearing Stephen Hawking’s beautiful words and then seeing a huge call to action on the screen encouraging people to “Become a global citizen and join ONE.org” was a beautiful end to a great night of volunteering, meeting people, and of course listening to one of the best bands in the world.”
