Madonna's concert reveal helps to raise $60,000 for Sandy relief


Madonna reportedly raised $60,000 in donations for victims of superstorm Sandy by baring her butt onstage at a show in New York.

The pop superstar visited one of the areas worst affected by the disaster during her trip to New York this month, and she was inspired to help raise money for relief efforts when she took to the stage at Madison Square Garden on Monday. She bared her butt and ordered fans to throw money onstage, and she also pulled a similar stunt during her Tuesday night concert at the same venue.

Madonna's risque fundraising tactic appears to have paid off, as she collected $60,000 in donations, according to the New York Post's Page Six column. The total came from two nights of onstage donations, as well as contributions from her production team and other associates.
