Made it to the bombshelter...

Originally uploaded by Brande Jackson.
The 'bombshelter' is also known as that circle area on the floor between the main stage and the cat walk at U2 shows that requires a most special wristband aquired only through the most special means to get in. San Jose volunteers Lauri Saltveit and Jennifer Turner not only did an incredible job helping us set up our booths and got lots of people to join the ONE Campaign, but while watching the show from the back of the floor in their ONE shirts, they were spotted by U2 manager Paul McGuinness, whom gave them the wristbands to the bombshelter as a token of appreciation for their help. Needless to say, they were quite happy by nights end: they did an awesome job for an important campaign AND got a once in a lifetime chance to see U2 up close and personal! They wanted me to say thanks to Mr. McGuinness as well, which I had a chance to do the following night.
