Charity allows us to go ahead with our own lives without worrying about the lives of the poor. Charity appeases our consciences." - Muhammad Yunus

It's not just a charity, "Give us money, give us money." It's being innovative. Like here's a show that you won't see anywhere else and you can come and whatever you pay for your ticket it's going somewhere. You can go and buy a pair of Armani shades, like Bono, but the money goes to Africa. It's quite cool." - Gavin Friday

They have a golf tournament. They have a golf outing, and they go out and they do it." - Lee Trevino
