Waxploitation, Inc. which was founded in 1995 as a record company and management company for groundbreaking artists will hold its second online auction to assist victims of the «ethnic cleansing» taking place in Sudan, a dire situation that the UN has called one of the worst humanitarian crises the world faces today. Up to 400,000 people have been murdered and more than 2 million people have been displaced from their homes by Sudanese government backed militias called the Janjaweed. The genocide is a massive campaign to rid the Dafur region of its African population.

The auction will launch on eBay on July 12th and will include rare and signed items donated by Radiohead, Angelina Jolie, OutKast, Eminem, BAM Margera, Bjork, Kanye West, Serena Williams, Trent Reznor, Ciara, Beastie Boys, System of a Down, Shepherd Ferry, Nelly, REM, Phish, Atmosphere, TV On The Radio, Red Hot Chili Peppers, David Banner, King Britt, Nappy Roots, Paulina Rubio, Rob Zombie, They Might Be Giants, John Legend, Prince and Metallica amongst many others. Over 100 items will be auctioned.
