Today's date marks the very last time that we will have three consecutive matching numbers: 12-12-12. One way we are commemorating this is by helping those who were and continue to be affected by October's hurricane Sandy. Over a dozen musical acts will be coming together to put on a benefit show at New York City's Madison Square Garden.

The fun starts at 7:30 pm ET (via Spinner) and will feature over four hours of some of the top names in all genres of music and will benefit the Robin Hood Foundation.

In addition to the artists that will be performing, videos of Sandy's aftermath and victims will be shown and introduced by such personalities including Jon Stewart, Jamie Foxx, Chris Rock, Seth Meyers and Leonardo DiCaprio.

If you would like to donate to the cause go here.
