Blink-182 is the latest band to raise money for COVID-19 relief. On Friday (May 1), the band revealed that it's not only heavily discounting most of the items in its online store to raise money for Children’s Hospital LA and Frontline Foods, but also made facemasks, with proceeds also benefiting charity.
"A couple things. 1. We are discounting almost everything in our store up to 50% off to raise as much money as we can for Children’s Hospital and Frontline Foods. Some stuff from deep in the vault while supplies last," blink wrote on Instagram alongside photos of merch and masks. "2. We designed 2 new masks you can pre-order now. Proceeds will also be donated to charity. Be well everyone!"

This isn't the first time Mark Hoppus has raised money for Children's Hospital LA since the coronavirus outbreak began. A couple weeks ago, the singer/bassist hosted a Twitch livestream with his son, where he played Animals Crossing, sang some songs, answered fan questions, and raised $5000 for the hospital.
