Beth is correct. In the US, each state has its own laws regarding give-a-ways, contests and lotteries. The contest may be considered an illegal lottery (you must pay for a chance to win) in some places.

U2sangel made a mistake in the URL in her first post but not her second. Try the second post link and it should take you to the site.

Guys it appears we are having technical difficulties with the site recently. Please know we're working on it, and maybe try back later, ok? Sorry for the inconvenience!!

I'll post back up here as soon as the site is back up!

You know even if this wasn't officially legal, do you really think Bono would sue anyone trying to raise money for African wells? I don't think so! He wouldn't let Principle Management do it either. If you could ask him personally he'd probably be glad to help

Bono might want to help us but I'll bet they are getting ready for the Oscars. I think they are going, Bono's back problems be damned. They're nominated for an Oscar! I'm nervous! We're going to try to work this issue out. I'm telling you the Web is your friend when it's working, but when it's not............
