<p><span></span>UNICEF is celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Grammy-winning album Concert for Bangladesh by naming August the Month of Giving. The concert, organized by George Harrison, was the first music benefit for a humanitarian cause. Now, it's inspiring celebs - from <strong>Selena Gomez</strong> to <strong>Enrique Iglesias</strong> - to show their support for the current famine and drought crisis in the Horn of Africa. During the Month of Giving all donations to the <strong>George Harrison</strong> Fund for UNICEF will go toward helping children in the region affected by the situation.<br />
Many musicians and celebs are excited to assist the cause, shouting out at their concerts and on Twitter, Facebook and their websites. Selena tweeted more than once on Aug. 1 about the event, writing: "Ravi Shankar asked George Harrison to help the kids of Bangladesh so they held a legendary concert. What would you do #4afriend?" Elvis Costello urged people to check out the event online to help it gain support. Other musical celebrities, such as Enrique, Nas and Lady Antebellum, tweeted about the anniversary of the concert and asked people to check it out and reach out to UNICEF.
Original Concert for Bangladesh performers Ringo Starr, Eric Clapton and Leon Russell are also reaching out. Their album made its digital debut on iTunes just in time for the Month of Giving, and download proceeds will go to UNICEF.
