from rush.com

World Vision, Red Cross and UNICEF are engaged in a joint partnership with the Canadian Broadcasting Cooperation (CBC) to air a National TV Broadcast on Thursday January 13th from 7:00 - 10:00 PM in an attempt to raise millions of dollars for victims of the Tsunami Relief.

At present there are commitments from many of Canada's top entertainers: Celine Dion, Tom Cochrane, Barenaked Ladies, Rush, Blue Rodeo, Jann Arden, Oscar Peterson, Daniel Lanois, Bruce Cockburn and many more. As this is a disaster that touches many countries, races, religions, ages et al- virtually every element of humanity - our hopes are that this CBC event will be a metaphor for us as Canadians to evidence a heartfelt response from all walks of life. To that end, the 3 hour broadcast will also feature personalities from all artistic and cultural communities. Margaret Atwood is helping to outreach to the literary world, Chief Mecredi has pledged to contact artists from the First Nations communities etc. From hockey to Olympians, from dancers to comics, the event will be a star-studded coalition of caring Canadians

Harumph! Smile it's good to know that so many people care..enough to do something about it. this was not an act of terror, racism, or stupidity..this was an act of nature. it was no one's fault, but everyone should help to make it better

it really is terrible it took 150,000 deaths to get us all to come together though, really.

I sure hope this concert raises a lot of $$. I also hope I can find it online to watch. If I do, I'll be sure and donate something to the cause.

I saw it on line last night at cbc.ca. Shoot! I thought the address was posted here somewhere!!!

It was sweet. CTTH with Bubbles from Trailer Park Boys and Ed Robertson from Barenaked Ladies. But I think Rush.com is going to have it on line soon.

I hope they raised LOTS of money!!! Very Happy
