My 2012 Edge calendar - proceeds to Music Rising

As an answer to a movement that I respect a lot for Bono's birthday (African Well Fund), I've started my own special fund-raising tribute for The Edge's Music Rising charity on his 50th birthday.

The Edge Bono U2 360 Tour 2012 Calendar | eBay

This is a brand new full-colour 12-month calendar for 2012 containing the best photos from the U2360 Tour taken by myself in East Lansing, Toronto and Montreal.

My estimated profit for each calendar after production and fees (which varies slightly based on location) is $4.50-$5. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of this calendar will go to The Edge's Music Rising charity in honour of his 50th birthday. You can follow me on Twitter @EdgeFest for updates on the funds raised.

The photos above are a selection of photos which appear in the calendar. Each month has a single featured colour photo. The calendar is ring-bound at the top and measures 8.5x11. It includes Canadian/US & UK holidays, band member birthdays and U2 album release dates.

I keep a small amount of calendars on hand and hope to ship within several days, however please note that when I run out, the production time on the calendars is approximately 1-2 weeks plus shipping so in a worst-case scenario it may take up to 6 weeks to receive your calendar.


I intend on doing something every year for his birthday and if anyone is interested in helping next year I would love to hear from you!

The first batch of calendars is coming in for sale on Friday - please consider ordering one or more for Xmas presents, U2360 withdrawal, or just in honour of Edge's 50th birthday. Ideally I would like to sell at least 100 calendars so I can give $500 to Music Rising, but the sky is the limit, I can always make more!

Thanks for looking and hope to see a few of you ordering...

EdgeFest/Lori-Jo

I would buy one if I didn't buy a U2 one at Newbury Comics a couple weeks ago.
It looks absolutely gorgeous though.

Best to order on E-Bay, I'm doing my first shipment out for everyone who ordered so far on Monday and I have another 12 available to send as soon as you order as well.

I do have US holidays on them, BTW

Thanks in advance
