NEW YORK, USA, 1 August 2006 -- Thirty-five years after George Harrison's 'Concert for Bangladesh' raised over $15 million for UNICEF, the late Beatle has been inducted into the Madison Square Garden 'Walk of Fame'.

The concert was the first of its kind and is recognized as the inspiration behind more recent humanitarian fundraising ventures like 'Band Aid' and 'Live Aid'.

Last autumn, Olivia Harrison, who received the plaque today, opened a fund in her late husband's name with an initial donation of $1 million. The George Harrison Fund for UNICEF specifically targets UNICEF programs in Bangladesh but also provides lifesaving assistance to children suffering from civil conflict, natural disasters and poverty elsewhere.
