No Doubt, the Strokes, Vampire Weekend handmake goodies for online Haiti-benefit auction

no-doubt-strokesImage Credit: Mark SquiresA host of actors and musicians—including Drew Barrymore, Daft Punk, Mark Ronson, Natalie Portman, No Doubt, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Grizzly Bear, the Strokes, Cat Power and Aziz Ansari—have signed on to contribute DIY artwork, clothing, signed instruments and more to Craft for a Cause, an online auction to benefit Haiti.

The internet-only event, which began at 8am this morning and continues through March 27, is spearheaded by Binki Shapiro, of sunny Strokes side project Little Joy. Top items on the bid site as of now include a hand-drawn t-shirt designed by Norah Jones, a Fender Squire II Stratocaster electric guitar signed and painted by Conor Oberst, and a hot-pink baby piano autographed by the members of Maroon 5.

Higher-ticket stuff, such as an original song by Mark Ronson, including all studio and production fees (minimum bid $1,000) and a pair of “1000% Kubrick Robots” signed and decorated by Daft Punk ($1,900), are made for bigger bank accounts, though many bits come in at kinder budgets ($30 starting price for Kings of Leon cover-art silk screens or a signed Amy Poehler caricature).

Find out more on CfaC’s official tumbler, and go ahead and get yourself a Jenny Lewis tote-bag poem or a Neil Gaiman fun pack for a good cause and a nice tax write-off.

    Much better than that We are the World mess, at least some talented people are involved this time.

    It’s awesome that they are supporting the relief in Haiti, but why are no big celebrities helping out with relief for Chile?
