The Strokes And Jones Get Crafty For Haiti

THE STROKES rocker FABRIZIO MORETTI has joined NORAH JONES and VAMPIRE WEEKEND to help raise funds for Haiti - by selling off personalised memorabilia.
The musicians have stamped their own designs on items including bags, t-shirts and musical instruments which will be added to an auction to help survivors of the earthquake that hit the nation last month (12Jan10).
Other stars taking part include singer Regina Spektor, The Mars Volta and Fleet Foxes' Robin Pecknold, while Mark Ronson and Daft Punk are set to contribute soon, according to the Crafts For A Cause founder Binki Shapiro.
And it's not the only creative initiative that stars have been involved in to help the nation - singer Jordin Sparks has designed a necklace, while Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson has created a handbag with fashion store Mango which will be sold to help Haiti.
