VIDEO: “WHY? JAPAN CHARITY AUCTION”
Anticon artists WHY? recently announced via its own website a charity auction for Japan featuring rare test pressings of WHY? and WHY?-related items as well as original lyrics, album notes and more. The most coveted item on the list is the Golden Ticket #4, where the highest bidder will have their own personal theme song composed and recorded by WHY? (more on that below), but first, a message from WHY? about the auction:
Please visit Josiah’s eBay account (josiahnice) to view our Japan relief auction house. All auctions start at a minimum bid and have a reserve with the exception of the Golden Ticket. We want to make a difference and help Japan through eBay and Hands On Tokyo by donating 100% of our sales to this non-profit organization. Bid high and bid often! Tell everyone you know about this sale! If you are a band or artist and you see this video/auction please consider joining us in raising funds for this much needed cause. Thank you all in advance and GOOD LUCK!
MORE INFO. ON THE GOLDEN TICKET AUCTION:
GOLDEN TICKET #4 is up for auction to the highest bidder!! For those of you who are not familiar with this project it is a contest we hold each month on our website (http://whywithaquestionmark.com/2010/12/why-presents-yee-olde-web-shoppe/) where one lucky fan/customer is chosen at random to receive a Golden Ticket with their order, Yoni will web-stalk them for lyric content, write a song about that fan and Josiah will produce it. Each ticket is unique and is in some form a golden object with a hand written congratulations note with instructions upon arrival. We then publish the song along with their photo on our site and facebook. THIS MONTH we are AUCTIONING the chance to win this theme song! We’ve had many requests from fans to write them songs and now this is your chance to WIN that request!! We are starting this auction at a higher price than our other auctions because it really is a once in a lifetime opportunity to not only win something of your dreams (we hope) AND to raise a seriously great amount of money for Japan relief. We know it’s alot of money to donate but we hope you will participate and give as much as you can to this charity.
100% of the sales for this auction (and all of our auctions) will go to Hands On Tokyo. At the end of 2011 we will have an entire albums worth of Golden Ticket songs which will include yours!
