Shelter from the storm – Birthday present

Singer and songwriter Bob Dylan turned 60 May 24 and announced he would give his song, “Shelter from the Storm,” to the World Wildlife Fund to use in a new public service announcement.

The gift marks the first time Dylan has permitted his words and music to be used for charitable purposes.

“Early on, animals were the only ones who liked my music,” Dylan said. “Now it’s payback time.”
