Yahoo joins Bono in anti-poverty campaign

Yahoo has joined rock superstar Bono's war on poverty, using its Internet prowess to transform the U2 singer-endorsed Web site into an online platform for community organizing, an AFP report said.
The report said the Web site went live last week. Co-founded by Bono, One:The Campaign to Make Poverty History, was a US coalition made up of more than two million people and scores of humanitarian organizations united to combat AIDS and extreme poverty.
Among those listed as supporters of the campaign was Microsoft Computer co-founder Bill Gates, the report said.
The "Yahoo-powered" Web site included features such as podcasts, blogs, a map that revealed information about local groups of kindred spirits, and photos of those who had signed a pledge to fight poverty, the report further said.
