Ringo Starr has contributed a song to a new compilation raising money for victims of Hurricane Sandy.
Also donating songs to the album are Joe Walsh, Kenny Wayne Shepherd, Jeff Lynn, Joan Osborne and many more.
While the effects of Hurricane Sandy devastated much of the eastern United States, many of the small coastal communities in New Jersey and New York, were hit especially hard. To help these small largely lower income communities get back on their feet, such as Red Hook Brooklyn and the Far Rockaways, a host of amazing artists have contributed to Songs After Sandy: Friends of Red Hook For Hurricane Sandy Relief, Volume 1.
“Songs After Sandy: Friends of Red Hook For Sandy Relief” is being sponsored by the Not For Profit Green Ground Zero, which was founded for exactly this purpose, to help communities rebuild after disasters. In this case it is particularly poignant as they also advocate for green restoration which creates a more sustainable environment while hitting the root of the problem of global warming.
All proceeds from this campaign will go to Restore Red Hook, Red Hook Initiative, Occupy Sandy, specifically the “Wedding Register” they maintain where they detail items needed in specific communities and Green Ground Zero.
