Kauer Guitars – a boutique electric guitar brand based in California – has raised over $40,000 for the Flyaway: Emergency Rescue Mission fund, which seeks to help evacuate those who have “no chance at survival” in Taliban-occupied Afghanistan.

The company took to social media earlier this week to offer those who donated $2,000 to the cause a freshly-built Korona model from its lineup. “Show us a $2,000 dollar receipt to [the] GoFundMe and I’ll build you a Korona (that you’ll get by end of 2021)," Kauer wrote on Instagram.
