I love me some Slash. The guy is all over the map when it comes to his career - and I mean that in a great way. He's creative to the enth degree and not afraid to take risks. He also uses his celebrity to help all sorts of charities and I love that - I mean, we should all give back but celebs can usually make a huge impact in whatever cause they approach. So what's Slash up to now? He's designing backpacks with Dora the Explorer. Well, sort of. Obviously, Dora the Explorer is a fictional character, but her brand is huge and kids love her. So, Slash is working with Dora to design a backpack for auction this summer. Television network Nickelodeon will hold the auction. Other celebs are involved too, including Shakira and Selma Hayek.
The backpacks will be auctioned in the United States, France, the United Kingdom, Mexico, Canada, Spain, the Netherlands, Greece, Australia, New Zealand and Israel.
In America, proceeds will benefit the Children's Defense Fund.
