Stinson Holding Online Auction For Haiti

THE REPLACEMENTS bassist TOMMY STINSON is selling off a collection of rock memorabilia to raise money for the child victims of the Haitian earthquake.
The rocker, 43, will hold the auction on his website later this month (Aug10), with all proceeds going to Timkatec, a charity which houses and educates more than 500 children in Port-au-Prince, the capital of Haiti.
The items up for sale include an autographed bass guitar and two of his trademark, custom-made plaid suits, as well as a number of items donated by his rock pals.
He tells the Associated Press, "We've got some stuff to auction off that I think will span all three bands I've been in, from Soul Asylum, Replacements, Guns N' Roses...
"We're just going to try to do our best to raise some money to help in our way, help the kids the best we can."
And Stinson hopes to encourage people to continue donating to the Haiti relief effort as the nation continues to deal with the aftermath of the natural disaster.
He says, "It's not just people talking about it that's going to help the earthquake survivors get past this. It's going to be a lot of years... We're just trying to do our little share of the work here with what we've got."
