Via Unheard Voices, "the original Concert for Bangladesh and associated merchandising raised $15m, which was distributed through UNICEF, the United Nations' Children’s Fund."

I had wrote about this concert in details earlier.

The great news is:
The re-release cover
"On October 24, Warner Music is releasing the double DVD and CD 'The Concert For Bangladesh – George Harrison & friends'. The package includes the original 99 minutes concert footage, a 45 minute documentary with exclusive interviews with Sir Bob Geldof and Kofi Annan, and loads of other bonus footage."

And all the royalties for the new release will go to UNICEF for the same cause.

At the recent release party Ringo Star performed with some of the original Bangladesh concert alumni fronted by George Harrison's son Danhi on guitar, Billy Preston on keys, Klaus Voorman on bass, and Jim Keltner on drums along with some original horn players.

As Bangladeshis we will always remember George Harrison, Ravi Shankar and those who contributed.
