Eddie Vedder is once again showing his humanitarian side. Over the weekend, the Pearl Jam frontman announced he's collaborating with artist Keegan Hall in an effort to raise money for Epidermolysis Bullosa research.
"I’m teaming up with@Keegan.Hall to raise money for @EBResearch and we’re both signing 200 limited-edition prints of this drawing (check out the “in-progress” shot here)," Vedder wrote in the post. "100% of the proceeds will be donated and the project has already raised $100,000 so far."
Hall's famous for his remarkable pencil drawings, which are so realistic they look like photographs. See his talent for yourself in Vedder's post below, and watch a video about the collaboration above.
Epidermolysis Bullosa is a family of rare genetic disorders that cause the skin to easily blister and tear, and this isn't the first time Vedder's raised awareness about the disease. In November, he debuted two new songs — "Matter Of Time" and "Say Hi" — during a virtual performance for an EB Research Partnership benefit called Venture Into Cures.
The Partnership was founded by Vedder and his wife Jill to raise funds and awareness in hopes of someday finding a cure for the gruesome condition, and both new songs were inspired by families dealing with EB.
