Blink-182 To Launch Auction For Tornado Relief

(Radio.com) Blink-182 will soon launch an auction to generate funds for those affected by the Oklahoma tornado. The band made the announcement via their Facebook page Tuesday (May 21) letting fans know that in the upcoming days they will be auctioning off merchandise in hopes to help those most in need.

"We have been to Oklahoma numerous times on tour, including just last year," the band wrote. "We see all of the people affected by this horrible tragedy as part of our blink-182 family."

The guys did not give exact details of what exactly will be going up for sale, but mentioned that 100% of proceeds from the items sold will be given back to the people of Oklahoma.

This isn't the first time blink-182 has put their celebrity to good use. Mark Hoppus, Tom DeLonge and Travis Barker raced to the aid of the Hurricane Sandy survivors last November with the sale of a limited-edition t-shirt emblazoned with their trademark bunny over a map with the stencil "East Coast Pride."

In March 2011, Hoppus auctioned off a series of rare blink-182 band memorabilia to raise funds victims of Japan's devastating tsunami. more on this story
