Blink 182 -- Emergency Auction for Tsunami Victims

3/14/2011 2:39 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Blink 182 singer Mark Hoppus is so dedicated to helping those affected by the tsunami -- he's literally pulled some very personal mementos out of his closet to auction off for charity.

Blink 182 Auction Items

The bids are flying in for cool stuff like the orange sweater he wore in the "Dammit" video ... used backstage passes ... and the band's dressing room sign from the VMAs.

But the coolest thing so far is the original hand-written lyric sheet for the song "Rock Show" -- and bids are already over the $15,000 mark.

It appears Mark will be adding more stuff to the auction block in the near future.

100% of the proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.

These musicians and TV and Movie people need to realize Japan put alot of money in their pockets and continue to do so. Giving money to Haiti is just like flushing your money down the toilet no amount of money will help Haitians they don't have the mentality to progress.

As far as Mayan prophecy goes this whole planet is soon to be taken over by earth quakes do to a pole shift that happens every 13,000 years. So what happens when the whole world is in a state of emergency Mark?

Good story TMZ.

At least with TMZ putting this story out there, it legitimizes this particular auction. Too many scammers on ebay these days.

ps. why is that older blond (who sits by max), always so grumpy and angry looking? She looks like she disapproves of everything going on??? :)

This band is top notch. I know someone who ran into Tom DeLonge (other lead singer) on the beach in San Diego. He was there with his son, and she with her kids. The kids were playing and my friend, her friend and Tom talked for a good hour about everything - kids, politics, travel, military, swim lessons, etc. In passing, he mentioned being in a band and being flown to a carrier to play (his brother is in the Navy). At the end, my friend asked what band he was in and he said Blink 182. She was totally impressed with this guy. Always loved Blink but after hearing this story from my friend and reading this story about Mark, they are definitely top notch in my book.

Here you have a great person with good intention and doing good deed for others who need help, and then you will read stupidly moronic, negative comments from thoughtless and insensitive and negative creatures of this planet.

Anyway, I take my hats off to Mark. Two thumbs up.

Write a check, Blink 182, you can afford it. I'm broke and don't have room in my teeny tiny little house for the ****e you don't want and/or deem valuable!

You know...if you can auction off something that people can actually pay for and donate that money to those who need it...you are alright in my book. You don't know that Blink 182 hasn't also written a check...this brings in even more money though. Nothing wrong with that.
