Kanye West and Skrillex are two of many fellow musicians, celebrities and designers participating in an auction for Sandy Relief. The items donated by each creator has a personal connection and is one of a kind.

West will donate a pair of his personal, one-of-a-kind Nike Air Yeezy II sneakers. The kicks were designed, worn and signed by West for the auction. When Skrillex won three GRAMMY awards in 2012, he was wearing a WeSC jacket. The very same one from that night, also known as the “Baby Maker,” was signed by Skrillex and is a men’s size small with leather sleeves, a wool body with full zip closure, pocket trims, two waistline pockets and one left chest pocket with zip closure.

“NYC has always been like a second home to me. It’s a cultural melting pot of pretty much everything having to do with anything. The city always shows me something new, always inspiring. I’m not a visual artists, I just did some fun scribble monster on the jacket that I think somebody out there will appreciate. I just wanted to do anything I could. It’s always so so so important to stay involved in community when stuff like this happens because a little really does go a long way when everybody is in it to help,” says Skrillex.

Other celebrities making donations include Selena Gomez and Donna Karen. Gomez is donating a bottle of her signature perfume while the fashion icon Karen has donated an signed Urban Zen Paper Mache bag and signed copy of Stephan Weiss: Connecting The Dots, from her personal collection.

All proceeds will be donated to New York Cares.
