Billie Eilish is contributing handwritten lyrics to a new fundraising effort launched by Annie Lennox of Eurythmics.

The Circle Music Icons Auction initiative will support Lennox’s The Circle non-profit organization, which aims to fight against gender bias.

Eilish’s handwritten lyrics to her song “Your Power” will be among the items available at the auction, along with handwritten lyrics by artists including Brandi Carlile, Alicia Keys, Angélique Kidjo and Lennox herself.

“I have long believed that music can build bridges and bring people together,” Lennox writes in an Instagram post. “It is wonderful to see these phenomenal female artists stand side by side with women and girls around the world facing and fighting gender-based violence.”

The “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” artist continues, “The auction proceeds will enable The Circle to support our grassroots partners helping women and girls to build lives free from abuse and fear, and advocate for long-term change to end the violence that will affect 1 in 3 women in their lifetime.”

Bidding will be open until December 5.
