One of the only good things about a disaster on the scale of Hurricane Sandy is that it definitely helps put things in perspective. And celebrities of every stripe are using their money and influence to spread the word and help those in need! Of course on the wake of the storm’s destruction, many eyes turned towards New Jersey’s favorite son: Bruce Springsteen. And he hasn’t let us down. At a concert in upstate NY, The Boss dedicated a heartfelt rendition “My City Of Ruins” to his hometown of Asbury Park, and thanked emergency responders for all of the work they’ve done. He is set to headline a benefit concert called Coming Together with fellow Jersey native Jon Bon Jovi, Christina Aguilera, Billy Joel and Sting, which will air this Friday at 8 PM on NBC. The telethon will be hosted by Matt Lauer and will also feature appearances by Jimmy Fallon, Brian Williams, and we’re sure many more.
The cast of Jersey Shore has been mourning the loss of their Boardwalk, and posted numerous well wishes to their twitters. J-Woww was reportedly moved to tears when surveying the damage, and Snooki has offered her volunterring services and pledged to donate money to rescue efforts and repairs to her Seaside Heights home turf. “Cleaning my closet today to donate clothes and whatever I can do the victims affected by sandy!” she posted to her twitter. “I’m comin with clothes!!!!”
