In the days after Katrina, Soulstrut.com, an online "community" (if such a term applies) of record collectors/obsessives, held an auction to benefit the relief efforts in New Orleans. Everyone was supposed to give a prized record up as a humble, modest, symbolic tribute to those who had lost everything, with all profits going to charity. (I got this. I gave up this.) Soulstrut is at it again with "Heatrocks for Haiti," with plenty of great pieces added daily. Also check out Waxidermy, who have a great, super eclectic Heatrocks auction going on as well.
