On charity and The Who

General Geekiness

The Who just finished their first tour of Australia in 40 years; fans have used this occasion to raise money for people in Victoria whose lives have been affected by the recent bush fires.

One member of the fan club made the quilt (by hand!) and got in touch with a few other members, and then Pete Townshend and Roger Daltrey. Pete and Roger agreed to autograph the quilt, which is being sold on eBay.

All proceeds go to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal.

I probably won’t post other things like this, but I felt that more people should know about this. It is a wonderful example of people working together to make a difference.
