Roger Waters Standing Up For Heroes

Roger Waters is no stranger to non-profit work and collaborating with charities and now we’re getting word that Roger is going to be standing up for heroes. 

According to ReMind.org, the Sixth Annual Bob Woodruff Foundation Fundraiser called Stand Up For Heroes is taking place tonight at the Beacon Theater in New York City and Roger Waters will be a part of it.

So, who will be joining Roger? It doesn’t sound like any of his former Pink Floyd bandmates will be taking part, but Roger will be joined on stage with 11 injured soldiers, including three Marines. They will join him for three songs, including Wish You Were Here, which he seems to play every time he has a chance. It was the song he performed at the tsunami telethon with Eric Clapton in January of 2005 and Roger also performed it later that same year with David Gilmour, Richard Wright and Nick Mason at Live 8, so I’m excited to hear what he does with it this time around.

If the name Bob Woodruff sounds familiar, you may remember him as the ABC News reporter who was severely injured while embedded with troops in the Middle East. Bob was traveling with the 4th Infantry Division near Taji, Iraq just outside of Baghdad when their convoy was hit by a roadside bomb and Bob suffered a traumatic brain injury. He was not supposed to survive, but he made a miraculous recovery and started the Bob Woodruff Foundation to help wounded soldiers.

In the five previous years of the event, the Bob Woodruff Foundation has raised $10 million dollars to help wounded soldiers and their families and you can help, too. You can make a $10 donation by texting “BWF” to 50555. It will automatically be charged to your cell phone bill and the founder of Craigslist has announced that he will be matching cell phone donations up to $25 thousand dollars today, so you have until midnight to make your donation.

The concert will air tonight beginning at 7pm Central on ReMind.org.
