Just another reason why I love Eddie Vedder!

Vedder's auction items to help school in Ojai.

If you would like to own an autographed Pearl Jam poster or a band wardrobe T-shirt worn and signed by frontman Eddie Vedder, I have good news for you.

They're among a list of Vedder's personal items that are available
Through Wednesday on eBay.

If you also have an inclination to help the Montessori School of Ojai, well, this truly is your lucky day...

Turns out the rock icon has a connection at the Ventura County school: Pearl Jam's longtime monitor engineer lives in Ojai and has had 2 children come through the school. Karrie Keyes, the engineer says the band and Ed are not just employers but an extended family, the band has always been supportive of the engineer and their 2 daughters.

Vedder offered to put up 16 items on eBay, with the funds to benifit the 120-student school serving children 2 to 14 and it's environmental efforts.

Specifically, auction proceeds will be used for the infant-toddler program and the further conservation of the campus.

Ed was very enthusiastic about helping out.

Auction items-most of them from the band's West Coast April Fools Tour 2008-include 10 handwritten set lists as well as a variety of items signed by Vedder. An "Into the Wild" CD, a tour program and a guitar pick, a vocal microphone, T-shirts & posters.

Bidding on the items ends at various times between 5:30pm and 7:02pm Wednesday.
