Rockers Motley Crue and Kiss are offering funds to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund

The members of Kiss and Motley Crue may seem like a wild bunch, but that doesn’t mean they don’t also have a serious side. Now, both Kiss and Motley Crue are offering some financial help to those affected by the recent movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colo.

The bands announced earlier this week at a gig in Englewood, Colo., that they will be giving $100,000 to the Aurora Victim Relief Fund. The fund was created to offer help to victims who were affected when suspected gunman James Holmes allegedly started shooting in a filled movie theatre on July 20 during a midnight showing of Batman’s latest movie, “The Dark Knight Rises.”

“We hope that our small gesture helps inspire others to band together in compassion and financial support for all involved in this unspeakable tragedy,” Paul Stanley of Kiss said in an official statement.

“We bonded together with our tour partners and friends Kiss to donate money, but we also hope it inspires others to do the same, no matter how big or small,” added Motley Crue’s Nikki Sixx in a statement.

Those interested in offering funds to the victims of the Aurora, Colo., shooting may visit GivingFirst.org and donate any amount. Twelve lives were claimed and 58 were injured at the midnight viewing at an Aurora theater.
