Willie Nelson signs, auctions off face masks gifted to him so that more PPE can be made
The masks ended up on the CharityAuctionsToday website complete with photo proof of Nelson signing each one. As of this writing, the auction has already raised more than $3,500 that will reportedly go toward helping Boike and Cabazos produce more masks. Prior to the auction, their small effort resulted in them producing and giving out more than 500 masks to people in need.
They told the outlet that they were inspired by seeing how the community rallied when Hurricane Harvey devastated the area in 2017.
“I remembered about us as a community during Harvey and the flooding we had. I said, everybody was helping each other,” Cabazos said.
Representatives for Nelson had no comment when reached by Fox News.
His granddaughter, however, told KTRK that the move to sign and auction the masks is just how he thinks.
“Well, that’s him. That’s who he is. That’s him every day. He’s just relaxed. He’s just giving. He’s just got a great smile, and he’s just the best,” Ward told KTRK.
