An Auction with OXFAM, in Aid Of Haiti Earthquake.
Emily Eavis is working with OXFAM to create an online auction of one-off items from artists that money can't buy in the hope of raising funds to go quickly and directly to those that need it. She visited Haiti with Oxfam in 2002... "We witnessed some incredible people facing extreme hardship head-on with immense strength in spirit and no self pity. As we have all seen from the reports, Haiti simply does not have the resources to cope with a disaster on this scale and desperately needs our help now."
I'm happy to contribute a one-off Silkscreen Print commissioned by the Chemical Brothers for their Brotherhood Album in 2008. Whilst viewing the auction I noticed Tom & Ed (The Chemical Brothers) have donated a drum machine, pictured above.
Many more donations are coming in now from artists including Manic Street Preachers, Vivian Westwood, Radiohead artist Stanley Donwood, Doves, DJ Shadow, Jeremy Deller, Magic Numbers and many more so please check OXFAMS shop on Ebay for regular updates.
