Even pop royalties and 80’s rivals, Cyndi Lauper and Madonna are extending their love and thoughts for the typhoon Haiyan survivors in the Philippines.
Cyndi Lauper expressed her concerns via her official Twitter account last November 13:
And this wasn’t the first time the Grammy, Emmy and Tony award winning artist donated to the typhoon victims in the Philippines. Back in 1989 after her first concert stint in Manila, Ms. Lauper reached out to the typhoon victims. Read the previous article here.
Madonna on the other hand, is convincing her fans to help donate via her official Facebook account through Mercy Corps:
I used to be like this. . .
I do admit that I still listen to this fuming album from start to finish everytime angst and my alter ego is confronting me and it gives me temporary relief, an imaginary outlet to release the fire in me and be back to my normal self again after breathing it out.
But recently, I chose to be like this. . .
Mellow. Healed. Just like Alanis, I found myself striking the right balance between my angry past and enlightened present.
Allow me to end this post with a quote from a dear friend of mine: “As we grow up, we don’t lose friends. We just learn who the real ones are. “
