    U2 guitarist The Edge has launched a Hurricane Sandy relief initiative via his Music Rising charity.

    Music Rising will donate $250,000 to help rebuild school music programs that were affected by Hurricane Sandy, which tore through the East Coast in October and displaced so many people.

    The organization was formed in 2005 to rebuild music programs on the Gulf Coast that were impacted by Hurricane Katrina in August of that year.
