Huge names in music are lending their talents to Hurricane Sandy relief efforts at the 12-12-12 concert on Wednesday.
Every penny sold from ticket sales will go directly to Sandy victims through the Robin Hood Relief Fund, which provides material, money and aid to local organizations that are serving families and individuals in the regions hardest hit by the storm, including more than 200 Patch towns in New Jersey, Connecticut and New York.
The all-star lineup includes Bon Jovi, Eric Clapton, Dave Grohl, Billy Joel, Alicia Keys, Chris Martin, Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band, Eddie Vedder, Roger Waters, Kanye West, The Who and Paul McCartney, with other artists to be announced.
The Concert for Sandy Relief will be broadcast live at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday from Madison Square Garden via a global network of television stations, Clear Channel radio stations and online, according to the concert’s website.
The money will go toward medical and humanitarian aid, grants and programs to help Sandy survivors. You can simply tweet the hashtag #PatchRebuilds, or go to the Patch Rebuilds website.
