Microsoft is partnering up with the Make-A-Wish foundation and offering some celebrity-endorsed custom Xbox One consoles for this year’s Consoles for Kids charity auction. This follows a similar collaboration in 2007, though now the list of celebrities is longer and more star-studded.

Celebrities such as Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Ninja and Wiz Khalifa — as well as development teams behind games like Minecraft and Fallout 76 — signed 19 custom Xbox One X consoles (and one Xbox One S), ranging from sleek signatures and game-themed patterns to a close-up of Jack Black playing the saxophone. There’s truly a custom console for everyone.

Microsoft will donate 100 percent of the proceeds from the charity auctions to Make-A-Wish. The full list of celebrities, athletes and internet stars who autographed custom consoles for the initiative is below:

  • Caleb McLaughlin (Stranger Things)
  • Carmelo Anthony of the Houston Rockets — which also comes with sneakers
  • singer/songwriter Charlie Puth
  • a Jungle Cruise-themed Xbox One X signed by actors Dwayne Johnson & Emily Blunt
  • YouTube personality iJustine
  • Jack Black (School of Rock)
  • rapper Ludacris
  • Liverpool F.C.
  • Fortnite streamers Ninja and Marshmello
  • rapper Post Malone
  • singer/songwriter Prince Royce
  • WWE superstar Ronda Rousey
  • YouTube comedy channel Smosh
  • Olympic gold medalist and world record holder Usain Bolt
  • rapper Wiz Khalifa

The game-themed consoles will be:

  • Battlefield 5, signed by the team at EA DICE in Sweden
  • Fallout 76, signed by Todd Howard at Bethesda Game Studios
  • Halo, signed and designed by the team at 343 Industries
  • Minecraft — the lone Xbox One S! — signed by the team at Mojang
  • Rocket League, signed by the team at Psyonix

The auction will be going on from Sept. 19 to Oct. 3 on CharityBuzz.
