PunkNews.org, Paper+Plastic and Limited Pressings recently began a sweet auction for Haiti relief that I was going to post about, but then the Grammys happened, and I forgot about it. The auction is ongoing and has so far raised around $16,500 for Haiti relief. All proceeds go to my favorite organization, Doctors Without Borders. Green Day vinyls are being auctioned, so if you are lucky to have a record player (I’m not so lucky), go and take a look at all of the punk artists on auction now.
The Grammys MusiCares Foundation is auctioning off some Green Day-related items as well, though these aren’t for Haiti relief and some of them have a high starting bid threshold. Check them out, though. There is a signed Les Paul guitar, signed photographs of the band, and a signed vinyl copy of 21st Century Breakdown. While the auction isn’t for Haiti relief, it is for a good cause nonetheless. You can find out more about MusiCares here.

Adeline Records announced a charity auction today via their Facebook page and Adeline Records website. All proceeds from the auction will help Doctors Without Borders with their relief efforts in Haiti.
eBay items for auction include Rock Band (not the GD version) items, vinyl from Green Day, the Foxboro Hot Tubs, AFI, and Broadway Calls; Green Day’s “Live from Tokyo” EP on CD, as well as a “Rock of Art” catalog. So head on over and bid for stuff to fill out your own personal collection and help Doctors Without Border help Haitians with much needed medical care. It’s still a massively desperate situation in Haiti and while we’re all broke here in the States right now, at least most of us have a roof over our heads for the most part.
Follow Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) on their Facebook page or on Twitter for all the latest updates on their efforts in Haiti and around the world.
