While performing in concert last week in Englewood Colorado, legendary Rock bands KISS and Motley Crue announced their pledge to donate $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund, which provides support to the victims and families of July’s Colorado shooting tragedy that happened during the midnight premiere of Dark Knight Rises at the Aurora Theater.
Paul Stanley had this to say about the donation:
“The terror these innocent victims of the Aurora massacre must have experienced and the profound loss their families now face is unimaginable. We hope that our small gesture helps inspire others to band together in compassion and financial support for all involved in this unspeakable tragedy.” [Motley Crue-Official]
I applaud the members of KISS and Motley Crue for their efforts to ensure this senseless tragedy remains in the forefront of everyone’s minds and hearts. The use of their platform, influence and resources to be of help to others who are in need of comfort and assistance is highly admirable. I sincerely hope that other performers are inspired to do the same.
