I think its great when people can come together for a cause.  Even better when there is a distraction (concert) on top of raising money.

New Jersey natives Jon Bon Jovi and Bruce Springsteen performed.  Sting, Billy Joel Christina Aguilera and more all came together to help raise money for the devastation from Hurricane Sandy.

Certainly this part of the country isn't prepared for this type of weather.  Snow, yes, hurricanes, no.
