Ex-ABBA rocker donating ring tone for Red Cross

Former ABBA member Benny Andersson has composed a ring tone for mobile phones that will be sent to people who donate money to the Swedish Red Cross' annual Christmas collection drive, the organization said Friday.

To get the ring tone, called Red Xmas, Swedes must donate 50 kronor — about $6 — by sending a text message from their mobile phones to a special number set up by the Red Cross. The donation will then be added to their phone bill, and a link to download the ring tone will be sent to their phones.

Andersson was part of the Swedish supergroup in the 1970s and 1980s and has since written several musicals together with fellow ABBA member Bjorn Ulvaeus.
