Fall Out Boy Auctioning Rare Items For Charity

Posted by - 09:21 PM on 12/24/05
Fall Out Boy is auctioning off several items to benefit the African Children's Educational Trust; check Pete's journal entry below for more details:
Pete's Journal Entryso i was sitting around this christmas. just kinda getting bummed out looking at the lights outside of shiny houses in my neighborhood and decided that it was time fall out boy gave somethng back. we decided to pick a cause that we feel is often overlooked- education of poor people in africa (specifically ethiopia). we feel like education is one of the most important building blocks in change- so after doing some research we found and organization that we felt really was doing it right: www.a-cet.org - this isn't some glossy amazing press piece it is doing something quietly to make a change- and we loved that. so we decided to put a couple of old and rare FOB and clandestine items up on ebay. here's the deal- if you dont see the link off of a fall out boy site than don't trust that it is us doing it- part two- keep bidding the more we can help the better. and three we will keep adding more items up here for a bit so keep checking back. they are all legitimate and endorsed by FOB and all items will come signed. happy bidding:

thats pretty cool of them.... i can't believe they're already giving to charity. a year ago, they would never be able to do this.

too bad those shirts are ugly. that pez dispencer and the FOB trading cards are pretty funny.

Contributing to charity is really great, and so is what these guys are doing. but theyre not really contributing anything out of their own pockets, just telling their fans to contribute. The things they are auctioning off are of no real value to anyone but their fans so its not like this is setting fob back too much
