Yellow Bird Project is an organization that partners with indie rock musicians to create and sell t-shirts to benefit an array of charities, each chosen by the musicians.
In addition to the original t-shirt designs, Yellow Bird Project has two books out — the Indie Rock Poster Book and the Indie Rock Coloring Book.
Bands involved in the project include:
Andrew Bird, Au Revoir Simone, Beach House, Bon Iver, Devendra Banhart, Laura Veirs, Metric, Ra Ra Riot, Rilo Kiley, Stars, Tegan and Sara, and Whispertown 2000.
Binki Shapiro of Little Joy has been collecting custom-made artwork from artists including The Strokes, No Doubt, Norah Jones, Jenny Lewis, Sia, Devendra Banhart, Conor Oberst, Vampire Weekend, Fleet Foxes, Regina Spektor, Natalie Portman, and Adam Green.
This artwork will be auctioned online on March 15, with all proceeds going to Haiti.
