    Bono of the band U2 accompanied by his wife, Ali Hewson, visited a Nordstrom store on Saturday to promote a designer T-shirt to raise money to pay for AIDS medication and medical care in Africa.

    The shirts, emblazoned with the logo of Bono's "One" campaign against poverty, are made in Africa by Edun, a fair trade clothing label started by Bono and Hewson. The company will donate $10 for every $40 shirt sold to a fund supporting the health care of the factory workers who make the shirts.

    The shirt factory is in a village in Lesotho in southern Africa. Bono said he hopes to get 5 million people signed up for his anti-poverty campaign by the next presidential election.
