Energy access is the number one deterrent to developing African nations whom are rich in mineral wealth, natural gas and sunlight. We provide hundreds of millions of vaccines to the continent every year and a large percentage of those can be lost due to lack of refrigeration. Women still birth in the dark, walk miles for clean water, cook using wood and dung inside their one room homes and where energy exists these cities have rolling black outs because the systems are unreliable.
One.org was co-founded by Bono a decade ago and has made a huge impact on the cause. ONE now has over 29,000 members in the state of Colorado and that number is constantly growing. This particular event is to honor those individuals that have participated or taken action over the last several years around our fight to end extreme poverty globally and to honor Rep Perlmutter and Polis for their Co-Sponsorship of the Electrify Africa Act. Members will get in for free by becoming members of ONE and/or taking action on the website. Presale tickets for the artists involved will be $10. Night of tickets will only be $15 and VIP is $50. All ticket sales will go back to RED which goes directly to the purchase of AIDS vaccines. Production will include a full spectrum LED wall with African landscapes through-out the night. So people may participate in anyway they are comfortable.
