Charity auctions have been big lately, raising money for all kinds of causes. There’s Christie’s Green Auction, which announced its 2011 event today; the auctioning of the necklace that Lindsay Lohan stole; heck, Patrick Dempsey is even auctioning himself off!

Now, the power of the celebrity charity auction is being put to use to help Japan recover from the devastating earthquake and tsunami. Items include a signed acoustic guitar from James Taylor and a selection of vinyls and an autographed cymbal from rock band Black Rebel Motorcycle Club for music fans, and tickets to the Maxim 2011 Masters Party in Augusta for golf fans (or fans of Maxim women, I suppose).

Celebs are also offering unique opportunities in lieu of actual items, like Kim Kardashian who is offering the highest bidder the chance to meet with her this April. Jimmy Kimmel, who was evacuated from an island in French Polynesia when the tsunami struck, is offering bidders tickets to the show and a backstage meet-and-greet with Kimmel himself.

All of the items can be found at charitybuzz, where the charity auction will be running from now until April 7th. More items may be added in the future, so keep an eye on it if the current items don’t strike your fancy. All proceeds will go to tsunami relief through UNICEF.

Of course this act is outlandish, but so is the chicken being served for dinner, even if the picture deemed worthy of sharing is a less easily sensationalized chicken salad.
