U2's The Edge Sets up Hurricane Sandy Relief Fund
Posted by Joseph Lee on 01.08.2013



NME reports that U2's The Edge has announced his Music Rising charity has created a Hurricane Sandy relief fund. Edge founded the group along with Gibson Guitar CEO Henry Juszkiewicz and producer Bob Ezri, to provide musical equipment and financial aid to musicians, schools and community organisations affected by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Now the group is going to help those affected by Hurricane Sandy, which affected people living in the tri-state area of the United States in October 2012. Music Rising have donated an initial $250,000 to rebuild music programs in the area and have asked for more donations for other projects. You can find more information or make a donation here.

The Edge is the latest musician to raise money for the cause. Lady Gaga donated $1 million to the American Red Cross and Rihanna gave $100,00 to the Food Bank of New York, as well as raised funds at her album launch party. The Rolling Stones, Bruce Springsteen, Paul McCartney, The Who, Eric Clapton, Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Kanye West, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Coldplay's Chris Martin played the Hurricane Sandy relief concert in New York on December 12.
