CHRISTMAS: U2's messages and a present for you!

CHRISTMAS CARD TO U2'S MEMBERS! WRITE YOUR MESSAGE AND WIN A DRAW OF AN OFFICIAL MUSIC RISING SHIRT AND A CD-SINGLE OF 'THE SAINTS ARE COMING'









TO WRITE THE MESSAGES: Hello U2´s fans, I would like to invite all of you to write a message to U2´s members (alphabetical order): Adam Clayton, Bono, Larry Mullen Jnr and The Edge, celebratinmg CHRISTMAS TIME 2006. You must click on "comments" immediately below the photo (of each member); will open a box, and you´ll write your name (Nome), your e-mail (E-mail), your URL (Site/Blog) if you have one; after, type your message (please, if you wish your URL be shown, type your link into the message) and click on "ENVIAR COMENTARIO"; this box will close and will open another box, and all you need to do... type the letters which will appear and click on "ENVIAR". I´ll copy the messages and I´ll past it on each post. These cards will be sent to Cecilia Coffey-U2 World Service. These cards will be sent, too, to Principal Management, in Dublin, by P.O. (The artwork is by juclayton, from http://claytonsgarden.zip.net/ (juclayton@uol.com.br); words by juclayton, brilledesoleil (Dr. Rose - rose.porto@uol.com.br and ReginaO'Numb)

WIN A MUSIC RISING SHIRT AND A 'THE SAINTS ARE COMING' CD-SINGLE! These messages are part of a campaign to increase the donations to Music Rising, the cause which Edge and all the staff at Music Rising have developed to put instruments back into hands of Katrina and Rita´s victims in New Orleans and region. This actual phase is to give back instruments to the schools and churches in the Gulf area, New Orleans and area.

From my side, my contribution to this campaign is to make my own donation and a draw of 4 official Music Rising´s shirts and 4 singles of 'The Saints Are Coming' to the fans who post a message to U2´s members for this CHRISTMAS TIME (and let the e-mail into the message). The shirts and CD-singles will be sponsored by myself. I´ll buy the shirts and the CD-singles. The draw will be filmed and available on youtube (I´ll film it). This draw will happen on December 22, 2006 and will retain the names of the fans who posted their message until December 21, 2006, and add the e-mail into the comments. (JuClayton and Rose are part of this campaign, too, as partner on art-work and words)

Take good care of yourself, my friend.

Thank you so much friends, for your support....

Read it, this is great...

Music Rising is recommended to Christmas gifts:

"Gifts That Give Back: Heifers, Musical Instruments, Knit Caps

By Mary Romano and Patrick Cole

Dec. 19 (Bloomberg) -- For not much more than the price of the top porterhouse at New York's Kobe Club restaurant, you could give a whole heifer to a needy family -- and notch up a last- minute tax deduction at the same time.

At the height of the holiday shopping season, many philanthropic organizations make it easy, even inexpensive, for you to give back. All of the charities let you make gift donations in someone's honor, and many let you set up gift registries detailing what people might donate in your own name.

Heifer International ( http://www.heifer.org ) aids families in 50 countries, including the U.S. For as little as $10, you can buy a share of a sheep, pig or goat; for $20, you can procure a flock of chicks, geese or ducks; a share of a heifer costs $50, and for $500 you can give a family an entire cow. (That Kobe Club porterhouse, by the way, costs $390.)

Families who are beneficiaries promise to pass on their animal's offspring to another family in need, so ``everyone becomes a donor and feels dignity,'' said Jo Luck, Heifer's chief executive and president.

If you're interested in supporting the arts, Music Rising (http://www.musicrising.org ) was started in November 2005 to help professional Gulf Coast musicians by replacing musical instruments lost or destroyed by Hurricane Katrina. It was created by U2 guitarist David Evans (``The Edge''), along with Gibson Guitar Corp.; Guitar Center Music Foundation, which supports music programs in the U.S.; and MusiCares, a program that helps musicians with financial or medical emergencies. The initiative has aided more than 2,200 musicians. Donations also will be used for Music Rising's latest project: replacing musical instruments in churches and schools.

Music in Schools

Tipitina's Foundation in New Orleans (http://www.tipitinasfoundation.org ) also is purchasing musical instruments for schools. The foundation has raised $320,000 so far, Executive Director Bill Taylor said.

``Right now, New Orleans is in trouble,'' Taylor said. ``The recovery process has been a slow one, and one of the most important parts of the city is the music.''

It costs about $90,000 to equip a high-school marching band with instruments ranging from tubas to trumpets, he said. Since Katrina, at least 17 schools have restored much or part of their music programs. ``Even schools that we've helped are still in need of instruments,'' Taylor said. ``Funding is such that not every music student is able to obtain an instrument.''

Adopt a Booby

The World Wildlife Fund ( http://www.worldwildlife.org ) works to save endangered species and protect their habitats. The Washington-based organization works in 100 countries on more than 2,000 conservation programs. WWF showcases 40 species of animals for symbolic adoption, with the top five this holiday season being polar bears, tigers, snow leopards, pandas and blue-footed boobies, which are tropical seabirds found in the Galapagos Islands and along parts of South America's Pacific coast.

The minimum donation is $25 and gifts can be designated in someone else's name. ``WWF is helping people conserve rather than consume by offering holiday gifts that benefit the Earth rather than take from it,'' said Terry Macko, vice president of membership.

Warm Newborns

Save the Children ( http://www.savethechildren.org ) started a campaign last August asking people to knit a cap to keep newborns warm. The effort took off, and the organization so far has received 50,000 caps. Save the Children is accepting caps until Jan. 15, and executives are expecting a large shipment to arrive after the holidays.

``We've heard from people who are making it a part of the holidays,'' Save the Children spokeswoman Wendy Christian said. ``Youth groups and church groups are making them during their holiday parties -- you can still drink the cider and eat the Christmas cookies, but you also knit a cap.'' An instruction kit can be downloaded on the group's Web site.

At the end of January, the organization will send the caps to hospitals in Malawi and Bangladesh. The organization said the countries were chosen because each has a high rate of newborn deaths each year.
