Over the past month, both Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson were busy supporting the Grapes For Humanity charity organization, whose main focus is to provide a better quality of life for victims and survivors of disasters.
Earlier this month, there was a charity auction that contained numerous Rush related items. The auction was a tremendous success and raised thousands of dollars for the cause. Geddy Lee recently posted a message at Rush.Com thanking all those who participated in the auction:On behalf of Alex, myself and the entire GUP team I'd like to say a huge ginormous THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH to all of our fans, friends, and followers who took the time and spent their hard earned money to support this Grapes Under Pressure 3 Ebay auction in support of Grapes for Humanity Canada. Your money will go a super long way to help rebuild health care facilities in the Philippines that were damaged or destroyed in the Haiyan Typhoon. You have helped a lot of people!In September, both Geddy and Alex also participated in their third Excellent Harvest Adventure:
Thank you all for caring!
my best to you,
