Today's Edition of Awesome

I was thisclose to using Dio's "Holy Diver" as today's Metal Monday selection, but opted against it because I couldn't find an HQ version of the video in my two minutes hours and hours of searching. Fortunately, though, RJD earns a mention here today (at least indirectly), because of an awesome press release that hit my inbox a short while ago.

The Asian Elephant Art & Conservation Project and the Ronnie James Dio Stand Up and Shout Cancer Fund are teaming up "to create one-of-a-kind guitars painted by the project's elephants in Thailand to raise money and awareness for both organizations." The guitars (donated by ESP) will be auctioned off, and AEACP and Stand Up and Shout will split the proceeds. This just oozes awesome.
