Want to get some really rad crafty items made by some of your favorite artists and musicians and help out a great cause while you are doing it? Of course you do! WLYS best bud Binki Shapiro has organized some of her contemporaries to craft a bunch of one of a kind items to be auctioned of online on March 15th to help raise money for the Haitian earthquake relief efforts. It’s called Crafts for a Cause and here’s what Bink has to say about it:
My name is Binki Shapiro, and I play in the band Little Joy. In an effort to raise money for the relief efforts in earthquake-devastated Haiti, I’ve rallied a bunch of artists to contribute custom-made artwork — t-shirts, tote bags and other personalized items — for the Crafts For A Cause auction. All proceeds will go to Artists for Peace and Justice, an amazing charitable organization founded by my dear friend Paul Haggis. To learn more about them, visit www.artistsforpeaceandjustice.com
The list of items and participants is growing daily and so far includes Spike’s drawings, Conor Obert’s guitar, Natalie Portman’s ballet slippers, and all kinds of other goodies from Sia, Vampire Weekend, The Stokes and many many more. What a great idea!
