In an act of selflessness, Omarion has encouraged his followers on Twitter to ignore his new album and use their funds to help Haiti instead. The singer’s ‘Ollusion’ LP was released on January 12th, the same day that a catastrophic hit the nation. Check out his tweets below (courtesy of Rap-Up.com):
Although I high doubt that many people were planning to spend their money on Omarion’s album in the first place, he deserves some recognition for this move. I am certain that some would argue that he will simply use this plight to warrant his projected poor sales next week, but that does not detract from the fact that his words could help the cause. Omarion joins a long list of celebrities who are using their power to help Haiti through one of the worst disasters it has experienced in recent times.
As Trinidadian who regularly observes the powerful effects of nature on the other developing countries of the West Indies, including hurricanes, earthquakes and tropical storms, I urge you all to please help in any way you can. If you would like to send funds and resources to those afflicted by this disaster, visit CARE to place your donations. Furthermore, don’t let a catastrophe of this magnitude be the only time that you consider the developing states around the globe. With millions living below the poverty line, we need to do our best everyday to help save lives.
