Playing EXCLUSIVE: Bono Announces Charitable Campaign With Revo Eyewear

U2 frontman Bono has always been a vocal activist and supporter of charities meant to improve the world. Now, he's launching a new campaign which will allow people to generously help those in need and look cool doing it.

Bono teamed up with Revo eyewear to release a new, special line of shades!

What's more, Revo will donate profits from every pair sold to the Buy Vision, Give Sight campaign which, along with Revo's partnership with the Brien Holden Vision Institute, is dedicated to preventing vision impairment and disease in over five million under served people across the world by 2020.

According to the 55-year-old singer, the cause hits very close to home.

"I've been dealing with glaucoma for 20 years," Bono shared in a video announcing the partnership. "I was told just yesterday that without the treatment I'm getting, I would be blind."

Ten dollars from every pair of Revo sunglasses sold -- both from Bono's line and all of Revo's other collections -- will go toward the campaign, which is aiming to earn $10 million in the next five years.
