Crafts – tiny little bits or tremendously spectacular monstrosities… no matter how much space they occupy, it’s no doubt that their handmade nature can steal many hearts. Crafts are one and only treasures, never replaced and never identical to any other items. Special. Unique. Pieces of art.
Binki Shapiro of the band Little Joy appreciated the priceless value of crafts and asked her artistic mates to join her in an initiative called ‘Crafts for a Cause’. Ornamented legendary guitars, totally adorable hand-drawn pictures, cutely doodled tote bags and emblazoned t-shirts are available from various artists, from Daft Punk, Conor Oberst, Jenny Lewis, Natalie Portman and Cat Power to Spike Jonze, No Doubt, The Strokes, Sia and more!
Musicians from the Red Hot Chili Peppers decorated a few white t-shirts and turned them into trendy fashion items. See for yourself by visiting the special Crafts for a Cause blog. If you want to help earthquake-affected Haitians, you can join the auction on March 15 at www.BiddingForGood.
All the proceeds will go to Artists for Peace and Justice, an amazing charitable organization founded by filmmaker Paul Haggis.
