Fair Vanity

"Fair Vanity" is what Bono wanted the editor's of Vanity Fair to call their July 2007 issue.  That was asking a little too much according to one of the articles.  It seems Bono was pretty lucky to get the editors to devote this issue to his favorite topic - Africa. 

You see Bono is the first ever guest editor of Vanity Fair and also this is I believe the first ever thematic issue.  It is a great issue and interesting to see a different perspective on the trials and hope of Africa. 

This issue of Vanity Fair is a part of Bono's continuing effort to raise awareness about the condition in Africa and what can be done to end the needless deaths of millions.  Bono is co-founder of Product (RED) an innovative idea linking corporation's marketing budgets to helping spread the word by (RED) branded products. Staying focused on Vanity Fair - they are donating $5 to the Global Fund to to fight AIDS, TB, and Malaria for every subscription to Vanity Fair in the month of July. One subscription would purchase 41 single-dose treatments for mother and baby to prevent the transmission of HIV from mother to child, according to (RED):Impact Calculator.  Additionally you can find Vanity Fair Africa on Amazon and pick one of your favorite covers out of 20!

Cover images include Muhammad Ali, Maya Angelou, Bono, George W. Bush, Don Cheadle, George Clooney, Jay-Z, Alicia Keys, Madonna, Barack Obama, Brad Pitt, Condoleezza Rice, Chris Rock, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Oprah Winfrey, and more!

I really enjoyed Vanity Fair's perspective and unique flavor to the topic of Africa and would greatly encourage you to purchase a copy. You can do that by clicking on the box below.
