      Waxploitation Records, home to such artists as Gnarls Barkley, Tha Alkaholiks and Dangerdoom, announced their 3rd Annual Darfur Charity Auction featuring signed items from Talib Kweli, Common, Kanye West, Cam’Ron, Tupac Shakur and others. The charity auction benefits the Save Darfur Coalition, Human Rights Watch and Oxfam, all organizations helping to raise public awareness and assist the two million people suffering from the civil unrest in Darfur.

      "Even though Darfur has become a prominent issue, it’s important we don’t forget that it’s a dire crisis there that is getting worse,” said Waxploitation founder Jeff Antebi. “We can’t assume the attention Darfur is getting is the same thing as assistance. Real help is as crucial now as it ever was."

      The auction started this week and will run until January 26. Check out the EBAY bid site before it’s too late!
