If you're anything like me, then there's probably one thing you like more than scoring a bargain on eBay -- and that's scoring a bargain on eBay ... from a world famous guitarist. And if there's one thing even better than THAT -- it's knowing that some of the money you part with will go towards helping animals!Imagine how stoked I was to hear then that Jona Weinhofen (guitarist in I Killed the Prom Queen and Bring Me the Horizon) is having a massive sale on eBay and slinging some of the money raised towards Animals Australia.
Wherever he travels round the globe, Jona is pretty easy to spot. He's the fella with lots of ink in the vegan cafe. Now once again, if you're anything like me, then your own metal band may not actually get the chance to tour the world (I guess we just weren't that good). But don't stress ...because if you hit up Jona's garage sale you'll at least LOOK like you have. Jona's lead got me thinking -- how easy would it be to have your own garage sale to raise funds for animals?? Plus you get to clear your room of all that gear you don't use anymore. Win-win!
Here's some words from the man himself. "As a devoted vegan and animal lover I have been supporting Animals Australia since 2008 when i did my first photoshoot & campaign with them. Ever since, i have closely followed Lyn White and the team's progress with speaking out on behalf of animals. That's why I'm more than happy for part proceeds from this sale to go towards supporting their latest projects."
If you're wondering about the 2008 campaign Jona is referring to, then check out this video I've dusted off. There's a bit more hair and a bit less ink - but that's definitely still Jona speaking up for the animals!
