On Friday, November 2 between 8-9 pm, NBCUniversal’s networks will join forces to air a one-hour live benefit telethon, “Hurricane Sandy: Coming Together.” Some of the greatest entertainers in history will be helping raise money for the American Red Cross to provide relief for survivors of Hurricane Sandy.
Hosted by NBC “Today” anchor Matt Lauer, the telethon will be broadcast from the New York studios of NBC at 30 Rockefeller Plaza and will feature performances from Christina Aguilera, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Bruce Springsteen, and Sting, as well as appearances from Jimmy Fallon, Brian Williams and more.
On Friday, November 2 between 8-9 pm, you’ll be able to check out the telethon on NBC, Bravo, CNBC, E!, G4, MSNBC, Style, Syfy and USA, or watch the livestream on NBC.com. The telethon will air live at 8pm Eastern, and be tape delayed for other time zones.
The American Red Cross response to Sandy is very large and will be very costly, affecting a massive area spanning much of the eastern half of the country. Financial donations help the American Red Cross provide shelter, food, emotional support and other assistance to those affected by disasters like Hurricane Sandy.
To donate, you can visit www.redcross.org, call 1-800-RED-CROSS or text the word REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
