Time: Persons of the Year, 2005

Time magazine named Irish rocker Bono, Bill Gates and Melinda as “Persons of the Year" for being Good Samaritans.

I'm v glad to see Bono in this list. As everybody knows, U2 singer Bono is a great rock singer as well as great humanitarian activist. He also concern for people of Burma and daw Aung San Suu Kyi. 

For information about Bill Gates and his wife Melinda's humanitarian works, check their website, gatesfoundation. They are doing great humanitarian works also.  For example, their donation for Malaria Research. Malaria is very severe problem for underdeveloped countries like Burma. Medicine companies do not want to invest research on malaria because it won’t be profitable for them.
