Fundraising for TAAL Volcano Relief Efforts 

I am raising funds and awareness for TAAL Volcano Relief Efforts in Batangas Philippines. Thousands of families are displaced from their homes when Taal Volcano erupted January 12, 2020 spewing ash and volcanic rock that covered hundreds of kilometers in the perimeter. While the volcano has entered a calm spell, the  effects of the eruption still lingers leaving many in need of food, water, shelter and clothing.

Batangas is my father's home province and I have been to all the places currently evacuated and it's difficult for me to sit idly by and watch things unfold without doing anything. So with this in mind, I have put up for auction my personal Chapman Guitars ML1 Standard Guitar on Ebay. This is the very guitar I have used in a lot of my video lessons on my YouTube Channel. If you have ever wanted to own a guitar that I have owned and played, this is your chance while helping out with relief efforts for the Philippines. If the winning bidder so desires, I can also autograph and date the guitar for posterity. It will come with a fresh setof my Curt Mangan Signature strings and a pack of signature picks from Anatomy of Sound.

Chapman Guitars ML1 Fundraising Auction on Ebay

Aside from the auction, I am also donating all profits from my t-shirt and merch sales from my Shirtly.PH store in the Philippines and TeeSpring stores for US and Europe. This will be in effect until the end of February.

Finally, if you want to donate by yourself without going through the Ebay auction or merch stores, you can find a list of organizations to send donations to in this list compiled by CNN Philippines.
