With the world a buzz on all things Van Halen as of late, it’s easy for us to overlook the little guy in need.
But Eddie Van Halen isn’t letting his reunion with David Lee Roth get in the way of his work as a philanthropist. The guitar great, along with John Mellencamp, are putting their guitars up for auction to aid two charities.
One of the first guitars produced for Eddie’s Wolfgang series will be signed and put up on an online auction with the proceeds going towards Drop in the Bucket, an organization that helps provide clean drinking water to children in sub-Saharan Africa.
ABC reports the guitar was used by Van Halen from 1999 to 2011.
John (formally Cougar) Mellencamp is also feeling quite charitable. He’ll be putting one of his acoustic guitars up for auction with the proceeds going to the Hillel Foundation at Indiana University’s Find Lauren Fund, which aids the search for Lauren Spierer, an Indiana University student who went missing last June.
You can bid on the guitars and other items at CharityBuzz.com.
