Ozzy Osbourne can't tour right now, but the rock icon is putting his old tour merch to good use.

Ozzy, who was forced to cancel his rescheduled 2019 dates in order to receive treatment for PRKN 2 -- a type of Parkinson's disease -- announced that he will donate 10% of the sales from his remaining stock of tour merch to The Michael J. Fox Foundation, which funds research into Parkinson's disease.

"Past tours exclusive merch last bits of remaining stock available until sold out!" Ozzy tweeted on Wednesday morning (April 15). "April is #ParkinsonsAwarenessMonth so 10% of ALL sales going directly to the @MichaelJFoxOrg for #Parkinsons Research. You can shop for the items now here. Among the items for sale are a number of Black Sabbath and Ozzy t-shirts, as well as keychains, patches, seat cushions, hoodies, tote bags and polished aluminum drum sticks.

Osbourne, released his first solo album in a decade, Ordinary Man, in February, cancelled a planned April trip to Switzerland due to travel restrictions imposed by the novel coronavirus.
