Rihanna Donates 1,000 Sleeping Bags To Sandy Victims, Throws Free Party At 40/40 Club
Rihanna is giving some of her storm-slammed fans a good night’s sleep.
The “We Found Love” singer is not only donating 1,000 sleeping bags to the Daily News’ Hurricane Sandy relief effort, but has transformed Friday’s release party for her next album into a rally to collect more material for the needy.
To attend the free event at Jay-Z’s 40/40 Club in Manhattan, you need only bring something to help the victims.
We’re not talking bling here. Fans are being asked to bring badly needed basics, like diapers and wipes, coats and blankets, and lots of cleaning supplies.
All those items will be packed into a Daily News truck and delivered Saturday to sections of the city that are still recovering from the storm.
The “Rihanna & Friends” bash runs from 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. at the 6 W. 25th St. club.
Way to go Robyn, we’re sure those folks are greatly appreciative.
