EDUN, the fashion label created by Bono of U2 and his wife Ali Hewson, did a runway show at Richard Nilssons event Fashion Night Cannes during the Cannes Film Festival Week. Richard Nilsson support the values and ideas of EDUN and ONE.

ONE is a campaign and advocacy organisation with more than 2 million members committed to the fight against extreme poverty and preventable disease, particularly in Africa. Cofounded by Bono and other campaigners, ONE is nonpartisan and works closely with African policy makers and activists.

ONE achieve change through advocacy. They hold world leaders to account for the commitments they've made to fight extreme poverty, and they press for better development policies, more effective aid and trade reform. They also support greater democracy, accountability and transparency in how these resources are being deployed.

ONE works closely with policy experts, African leaders, and anti-poverty activists to mobilise public opinion in support of tested and proven programs to fight poverty. At ONE, we believe the fight against poverty is not about charity, but about justice and equality.


(Arts and Music Uplifting Society towards Transformation and Tolerance)

World famous violinist Milena Dzekova performed during the Cannes Film Festival at the Xanadu Night event hosted by Richard Nilsson. It is our great honor to support the A MUST Foundation.

A MUSTT Foundation is an international NGO that encourages people’s awareness about the peace enhancing, transforming, communicative, educational and healing applications of music and the arts.

A MUSTT Foundation is for all sectors of society who would like to develop themselves further with and through the means of art. MUSTT stands for bridging the different worlds of arts and music into more fields such as politics, diplomacy, business and science. We like to stimulate especially these categories about using the arts in more functional ways. Arts is for instance a transforming, communicative and educational tool, which bridges new cultures and visions.

Residence 4 Life

In 2008 Richard Nilsson started the project Résidence 4 Life. His idea is to provide consumers with luxury products and services and at the same time a certain percent of any purchase within that label will go directly to charity. What kind of charity organisation the donation will go to is decided by the consumer of the product.

Résidence 4 Life is not a charity organisation, it is a simple business model where consumers can help fight against poverty, war, HIV etc.

As a consumer you have tremendous power and your choice will make a difference. The poverty in the world is not a technical problem - it is a human problem. Choose Résidence 4 Life for a better world.
