The band OneRepublic saw their own community of Aurora, Colorado victimized by a violent shooting massacre earlier this year, and now they're stepping up to assist Newtown, Connecticut following Friday's slayings at Sandy Hook Elementary School.  They're also asking for your help.

 

Frontman Ryan Tedder and his OneRepublic band mates took to the web this week with a video asking fans to donate money to their newly-established "Connecticut School Shooting Victims Fund".  They've even kicked in $20,000.00 of their own cash to get the ball rolling.  Within minutes another $15,000.00 in pledges was received.
