Waxploitation Launches 4th Benefit Auction for Darfur

causes2_300Waxploitation has put together its fourth annual auction to benefit Human Rights Watch, Doctors Without Borders and Oxfam America. 100% of the proceeds go toward their work in Darfur and elsewhere.

This year’s selection includes signed recordings and artifacts from Madonna, Kid Rock, Norah Jones, Wilco, The Shins, Gnarls Barkley, Kylie Minogue, Elvis Costello, Patti Smith, Arctic Monkeys, Diplo, Counting Crows, Matisyahu, Stereophonics as well as non-music items signed by Salvador Dali, Luke Chueh, Jean-Luc Godard, Yogi Berra and Hugh Hefner to name a few.

Waxploitation recently released Causes 2, its second benefit album for Darfur. The album includes exclusive songs donated by The Decemberists, Devendra Banhart, Diplo, LCD Soundsystem, My Morning Jacket, Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings, and others.

“With everything else in the news, it’s important to not forget Darfur,” says Waxploitation founder Jeff Antebi. “When we did our first benefit auction, 70,000 people had already died. Today, the number is estimated to be 300,000.  Almost five million innocent civilians are caught in the middle of this, with nowhere to go.”

The auction launches today, July 27th at www.ebay.com/causesauction
