Raven Drum Foundation is back for its third year raising funds for veterans, first responders and other trauma survivors, and has enlisted the help of some A-list musicians.

In addition to RDF co-founder, Def Leppard’s Rick Allen, among the stars who have donated signed items and experiences to the auction include Taylor Swift, Nikki Sixx, Tommy Lee, Todd Sucherman and Styx, Matt Sorum, Fred Armisen and many more.

Additionally, via a partnership with Musicians on Call, Dave Matthews’ guitar featuring his hand-drawn artwork is offered to help fund an ongoing partnership with Raven Drum to bring live music to bedsides in countrywide hospitals.

“I recently had the chance to attend a Raven Drum Foundation event and was really impacted by the healing effect the drum circle and joining together in a shared rhythm with a community of people had on me,” Sixx said in a press statement. “I’m happy to support Raven Drum’s mission by donating one of my signature bass guitars, along with a few other items, including a scarf worn on stage with Mötley Crüe, some signed books, and my custom picks.” 

Over the past three years, the annual 12 Drummers Drumming auction has raised more $120,000 through various events and efforts. 

With new items added regularly, the auction will be live until Nov. 11 at 12 p.m. PST. To bid, visit the website here.
