Bad news for U2 frontman Bono and his wife Ali Hewson.

The two started clothing line Edun back in 2005 to help raise money for Africa. Unfortunately, the company has been losing money instead.

In fact, last year their line suffered $9 million in losses!

And although Louis Vuitton purchased a large portion of Edun last year, it doesn’t seem to have helped.

Let's see if Edun can make profits this year.

Bono's Wife Creates T-Shirts For Poverty

Ali Hewson is doing her part to help alleviate poverty in Africa by launching a collection of t-shirts.

Ali explained why the cause is so close to her heart:

"I first travelled to Africa in 1985 with Bono and it was a journey that affected both of us deeply. We've been back many times since. We both want to show the beauty of the continent.

Kibera, where the school is situated, is one of the largest slums in Africa and is home to more than 100,000 orphaned children. The people who run the school are very dedicated, and the children so enthusiastic, we felt compelled and inspired by their energy. With these Ts we are able to provide funding to for basic school supplies, hot lunches and healthcare."

Bono's wife got help designing the Saharan inspired shirts from children in Kenya and can be purchased at the UK's Liberty department store.

This is inneresting.

There have been some loud whispers that Bono will be appearing in the next series of Louis Vuitton ads.

While the appearance may seem random, the U2 front man actually has a Vuitton connection. His eco-friendly company Edun is partly owned by LVMH.

The company declined to comment, but considering Bono is in one of the world's biggest band and LV is the world's most powerful luxury brand we think it would be a good pairing.
