The Script do their bit for Hurricane Sandy victims
The Script perform at Long Island and donate all to Red Cross to help Hurricane Sandy survivors.
Irish rock band The Script were scheduled to play Long Island on December 5 but had the date moved up to November 8 (a rest day) in order to help out Hurricane Sandy victims.
The group donated all proceeds from ticket sales, merchandise and their fee to the Long Island Red Cross.
“Had this hit Ireland, we would’ve been wiped out,” Script guitarist Mark Sheehan told Billboard.
Frontman Danny O’Donoghue added: “How could we rest when so many were in such need? America has been so good to us and has enabled us to have a global career. We felt we had to do something to show our appreciation and give back and help.
“We hope that by stepping forward, others will do the same. And, we hope we (brought) some much-needed fun and enabled the people dealing with such a loss to escape and enjoy themselves for a bit.”
Other stars including, Lady Gaga, Bruce Springsteen, Sting, Christina Aguilera, Billy Joel, and Jon Bon Jovi helped raise an estimated £15.5 million for the charity.
