Legendary country singer Willie Nelson is auctioning of signed masks that were gifted to him so that more personal protection equipment can be made.

Nelson and his wife, Annie D’Angelo, received face masks from Boike, a friend of Nelson’s granddaughter, Noelle Ward. Boike has been making cloth masks and distributing them in her community to help curb the spread of COVID-19.

Nelson signed his name on the masks, which he now plans to auction off so the money can go toward producing and distributing more free PPE.

“Noelle texted me a few minutes later and said, ‘Pops would rather sign these and have them auction them off. That way, you can get more materials and keep making these masks for free,'” Boike told CBS affiliate KTRK. “I just lost it. That’s not what I had made them for.”

Upon Nelson’s suggestion, Boike listed the signed masks on the FrontLine-Angels auction website, with each one starting at a bid of $200.

“Well, that’s him. That’s who he is. That’s him every day,” Ward told KTRK about her grandfather.
