HUMANITY +100: Man Tries To Sell Custom KIESEL GUITAR For Niece’s Funeral, The Internet Responds With A Massive GOFUNDME

If this won’t restore your faith in humanity just a little bit, nothing will.

A man by the name of Jeremy Brooks recently put his beautiful custom Kiesel guitar up for sale on the private “Kiesel & Carvin Buy/Sell/Trade” Facebook group to help fun his niece’s funeral:

“Hello fellow musicians, I am selling this bad boy today. I bought him at NAMM and he has served me very well. Clean tone, and everything I’ve ever wanted in a 7 string guitar. Asking price is $2000. Original price for this custom guitar is over $3469. Proceeds are going towards my niece’s funeral who passed away.”

Instead of taking offers for the guitar, members of the group responded in a truly heartwarming way:

Since then, a GoFundMe page has been created with a goal of raising $2000 for his niece. Already over $1000 has been raised in just two days, so things are looking pretty promising for this campaign. If you’ve got a few bucks to spare, we encourage you to help out a fellow musician who is going through a rough time. Praise the internet!
