One Love For Chi, the charity set up to help the Deftones' former bassist Chi Cheng, who sadly passed away earlier this year after being severely injured in a car accident in 2008, is running a raffle, with all the money raised going to help Journey For Jessica, a charity supporting a friend who shared Cheng's ward and also suffered a brain injury in an accident.

The prize is a duffel bag which the Deftones' UK publicist Em Van Duyts took on tour for her #MYCANVASJOURNEY campaign, having it signed by a rafter of bands, including Deftones themselves, The Bronx, You Me At Six, letlive, The Ghost Inside, Gallows and Skindred. Not only that, but it's filled with a shedload of goodies, among them a signed Deftones drum skin, their entire back catalogue on CD and VIP tickets to the Reading/Leeds festivals and the UK Vans Warped Tour.

To enter, head over to One Love For Chi's website, donate £1/$1 or as much as you can afford and write ‘EmsBag’ in the donation box, and a winner will be selected on August 9.
