RIHANNA RECEIVES S.O.S.
Our Bajan girl Rihanna has taken steps to help out a New York woman while showing us all that a truly talented class act can return some of the love her fans have given to her.
MTV reports the following via People:
As the new honorary cultural ambassador for her home country of Barbados, Rihanna is already using her clout to do some good. According to People magazine, the singer is working with the international donor network DKMS to help find a bone-marrow donor for 41-year-old New Yorker Lisa Gershowitz Flynn, a mother of two young children who suffers from leukemia and has four to six weeks to find a donor. "When I heard about Lisa's plight, my heart broke," Rihanna told the magazine. "I said, 'I need to get the word out about Lisa right away.' " (thx)Not only is she a great singer, fabulous entertainer and supremely hot, but Rihanna just turned 20 years old last week and proves that entertainers her age can easily stay focused on their job and give back a bit since they're in a position to help out. Love it! She can stand under my umbrella anytime.
