If you're into autographed guitars and helping to fight hunger, you're in luck. The 27th Annual Hungerthon by WhyHunger is now underway, and up for auction this year are guitars signed by Johnny Cash, Willie Nelson, Def Leppard, Bon Jovi's Richie Sambora, Maroon 5, David Byrne, and Mumford & Sons, just to name a few.

You can place your bids at this location, with all the winning proceeds going raise funds and awareness for hunger and poverty relief.

WhyHunger was founded by songwriter Harry Chapin and New York City radio personality Bill Ayres back in 1975, and works to support more than 8,000 grassroots and community organizations aimed at fighting hunger.
