A few weeks ago, Blake Hickey from Blakemore Effects emailed me about Circuits to Cure Cancer, a group of guitar pedal builders, retailers, reviewers, and musicians who have donated either their products or their time to help raise money for St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. From April 18th through April 28th over 30 guitar pedals will be auctioned off on eBay, with 100% of the proceeds going to this pioneer in children’s cancer research.
Having been diagnosed with a rare blood disorder myself, I can only imagine how difficult it must be for children or the parents of children with cancer, so I want to do whatever it takes to be involved and spread the word. Every penny counts when it comes to funding research that will, one day, lead to a cure.
Here is a list of the cool companies that are participating by donating their gear:
I hope you can help by either purchasing a pedal during the auction, donating to St Jude Children’s Research Hospital or just telling your friends and family about this incredible cause.
Here’s a video of a pedal from one of the participating companies, Sonic Crayon. I hope this goes up for auction, so I can bid on it. Let’s start a bidding war to raise as much money as possible!
