Britney And Shakira Join Efforts To Aid Storm Victims

BRITNEY SPEARS, SHAKIRA, the STROKES and LINKIN PARK are among more than 100 artists who have autographed guitars for auction to aid survivors of Hurricane Charley.

The online auction, called STORM AID and taking place at STORMAID.COM, will run until 20 September (04).

Spears' autographed TAKAMINE acoustic guitar currently lists at $950 (GBP527). More than 40 guitars are up for bid, with an autographed ALAN JACKSON acoustic the current high item, at $3,500 (GBP1,944). A guitar autographed by the Strokes and the X-ECUTIONERS - along with DASHBOARD CONFESSIONAL, KID ROCK, HOOBASTANK and THURSDAY - stands at $950.

Other artists signing guitars include LL COOL J, NAPPY ROOTS and KORN. All profits from the auctions go directly to the Red Cross and displaced victims of the storm.

INCUBUS guitarist MIKE EINZINGER says, "It's devastating to us to see people lose their homes. And hopefully our contribution will help ease the burden for some of the victims affected by the storm. We're honoured to do our part."

Charley caused millions of dollars worth of damage when it raged through Florida on 13 August (04).
