International Celebrities To Raise Funds For Yolanda VictimsInternational celebrities such as A-list Hollywood actor George Clooney and Miami Heat coach Erik Spoelstra are looking to contribute to the humanitarian aid and relief programs needed by the victims of Supertyphoon Yolanda.
In an interview with George by the Associated Press, the actor said that they are still looking at rallying troops behind the fundraising drive. It can be remembered that in January of this year, the actor organized the Hope for Haiti concert.
Celebrities such as Madonna, Chris Martin of Coldplay and Jennifer Hudson performed in the concert.
But since the tragedy just happened a few days ago, George said they are still figuring things out. They would need time if they will organize a similar one with "Hope for Haiti."
Coach Spo, as he was fondly called, also sent his condolences to the Philippines.
On his Twitter account, he posted: "On behalf of the Miami HEAT organization, we would like to extend our condolences to the victims of Super Typhoon Haiyan in the Philippines. We value the many fans that we have over there, and we will keep them in our thoughts and prayers."
According to a report in the Washington Post, the NBA Players Association and the NBA itself will donate $250,000 to the US Fund of the Unicef. This is intended for the emergency relief operation.
Coach Spo will also be a part of the public service announcement of Unicef.
Other celebrities also sent their condolences and sympathies to the Philippines. This included Jessica Sanchez, David Archuleta, Marie Digby, Elijah Wood, Mike Tyson, Olivia Munn, Maggie Q, Kristin Chenoweth, Nina Garcia, Jared Leto, Max Greenfield, Cassadee Pope and One Republic, who was recently in the country for a concert.
