Welcome to Repair the World’s 8 Nights of Sandy Service: volunteer projects, donation opportunities and tikkun olam ideas for the week of Hanukkah to help the individuals and communities impacted by Hurricane Sandy. Keep track of all 8 nights here.
In the wake of Hurricane Sandy’s destruction, just about everyone felt a strong pull to help out their neighbors and fellow Americans – including super-talented musicians! Now tonight, some of the world’s most iconic musicians and bands (think: Eddie Vedder, Dave Grohl, Alicia Keys, Kanye West, and Paul McCartney among many others) are joining together for an epic event: 12.12.12 The Concert for Sandy Relief.
This one-night-only (and once-in-a-lifetime) live concert will be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Net proceeds will be donated to Robin Hood, an anti-poverty organization that has been at the forefront of Sandy recovery efforts. From there, the money will be distributed to local organizations that are serving families and individuals who live in regions hardest hit by the storm.
If you have a ticket, lucky you! But if you can’t make the actual concert, you can watch it on live broadcast and make a donation to Robin Hood here.
