RJ auctioned some exclusive tracks on ebay to benefit Doctors without Borders:

“I decided to do a one-time-only auction of some tracks I’ve been sitting on with all proceeds going to Doctors Without Borders. This donation, while instigated by the situation in Japan, will be “untethered”, in that DWB does not earmark donations for specific regional causes; in short, they put resources towards where needs are highest. ”

The winning bidder will receive exclusive rights to the track, including the original ProTools session files.   You can check the auctions here (sorry, we snoozed, they ended this weekend) but also listen to snippets here.

A year after the massive earthquake in Haiti, many of the people affected are still without shelter or the help they need.  We donated our portion of proceeds from fund raising shirts to Doctors without Borders (Obey’s portion of sales went to Artists for Peace & Justice).  Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is holding an online event tonight called A Year in Action to answer questions about their medical programs in Haiti.

Hear first-hand testimonies from some of MSF’s medical aid workers, and ask them your questions about the reality on the ground after the devastating earthquake, during the autumn flooding, and now during the current cholera outbreak.

Panel Event Featuring:

Sophie Delaunay, Executive Director of MSF-USA
Dr. Greg Elder,
Medical Deputy Desk Manager for Haiti
Michelle Mays,
MSF Nurse with two assignments in Haiti in 2010
Jason Cone,
Director of Communication for MSF-USA

Thursday, January 13, 2011 from 8:00 PM – 9:30 PM (ET)

We just got a thank you from Doctors without Borders.   Proceeds from sales of  Haiti shirts from Obey and Junk Food allowed us a make a decent donation, and we wanted to pass the message of thanks along.  Please consider purchasing a shirt if you haven’t already…Obey shirts also benefit Artists for Peace & Justice.
