New Chris Cornell Guitar Strap Raises Money For Charity

Chris Cornell's family has announced a new initiative to raise money for his charity.

The new Chris Cornell Guitar Strap is now available, based on the one he used onstage that was custom designed with his signature embroidered into the leather. It's not cheap -- $225 per strap -- but proceeds go to benefit the Chris and Vicky Cornell Foundation, which the couple started during 2012 "to protect the most vulnerable children."

The straps are available via IfOnly.com and ChrisAndVickyCornellFoundation.org. Cornell committed suicide on May 18 after a Soundgarden concert in Detroit.
