Hurricane Sandy hit the East Coast (after massacring the West Indies) in late October, leaving thousands homeless, millions without power, and billions of dollars in damage. In hopes of helping to bring in donations to those in need some of music’s biggest names are participating in 12.12.12: The Concert For Sandy Relief tonight. Alicia Keys, Kanye West, Bruce Spingsteen and a host of other acts are all slated to take the stage during tonight’s show, live from New York City.

Sponsored by GE, Samsung Glaxay, Time Warner Cable, and more, those looking to do their part can give  in a host of different ways. Money can be raised by purchasing donation gifts for your Facebook friends, texting $10 donations to 50555, or using check-ins to Foursquare and Get Glue to contribute.

All proceeds from the fundraiser go to the Robin Hood Relief Fund. Click here for more information, and check out the live stream below.
