Sir Bob Geldof

Sir Bob Geldof began his career in the band Boomtown Rats in the 70s. After being in Ethiopia in the mid-80s and seeing the disgusting living conditions, he wrote the famous song “Do they know it’s Christmas?”. The song was recorded with some of the biggest artists of the 80s and released in 1984. The proceeds went to the poor in Africa. On July 13, 1985, Geldof organized Live Aid – a major charity concert with the aim of raising even more money for Africa. Geldof staged Live 8 on 2 July 2005, 20 years after Live Aid. The goal was then to influence the major political leaders in the G8 to write off the national debts of all poor countries. In 1986, Queen Elizabeth of England appointed him Commander of the Order of the British Empire for his commitment to injustice and poverty in the Third World. He has also been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize.
