The Grammy awards are arguably the biggest night in the music industry. While there are other award shows that celebrate music, this is the big one, the one that every singer and musician dreams of someday winning. What if you could give that experience to someone you love for the holidays.
Imagine giving someone the chance to be at the awards and getting in to some of the biggest Grammy parties around. What if you, or someone you know, is an aspiring singer, musician, or songwriter, how would you like to give them lessons with some of today's biggest stars, or the chance to be mentored by them?
Maybe collecting is more your thing. Imagine owning an autographed guitar by Roger Daltry, Johnny Depp, Joan Jett, Lenny Kravitz, and more. You could proudly display other music memorabilia by some of music's greats like Paul Simon, Barbra Streisand, and Taylor Swift.
I'm not saying you can get all of this, but you could get some from now until December 9 with Grammy Charity Giving Tuesday Sale on Ebay. Bids start at only $30 and the monies benefits programs ad services of the Grammy Foundation and Musicares. Since 2002, these auctions have raised more than $4 million.
