Guitarist the Edge has donated one of his favorite guitars to be auctioned for charity. An April 21 auction in New York City will take bids on more than 200 items to benefit Music Rising, a charity the Edge founded to benefit New Orleans musicians. You can ogle the items here.

FACT:

Mother Jones was founded as a nonprofit in 1976 because we knew corporations and the wealthy wouldn't fund the type of hard-hitting journalism we set out to do.

If you value what you get from Mother Jones, please join us with a tax-deductible donation today so we can keep on doing the type of journalism 2020 demands.
