Heatrocks for Haiti



As we all know, there is a calamity of gigantic proportions happening just 700 miles from the United States. This earthquake has left tens of thousands of people dead and many more injured and homeless waiting for aid.
  

The original "Heatrocks for Charity" campaign came about after Katrina. The folks at Soulstrut.com, a record collecting/hip-hop message board got together and auctioned off all kinds of rare records, the proceeds of which went to charities doing work around the disaster. In total they managed to raise over $100,000 for the victims of Hurricane Katrina. They hope to recreate such magic to help our dear neighbors in Haiti.  

Head over to Soulstrut for the record auctions.  If you're a fan of vinyl, you'll find some incredibly rare records up and it's all for a good cause.  Shout out to Team L.A.R.K. member Richard for the heads up. He has an auction up for a rare groove instrumental record called "Express Rising".
