Actress and fashion icon Heart Evangelista is letting go of some of her designer pieces to raise funds for victims of Typhoon Ulysses, which wreaked havoc in parts of Luzon last week.
On her Instagram page over the weekend, Heart auctioned off a Filipiniana dress from her old collection of hand-painted pieces in collaboration with designer Mark Bumgarner, which she later sold for P20,000.
She said that proceeds from the auction will go entirely to those affected by the newest typhoon to hit the country.
In her post, Heart also said that she will be auctioning off more designer pieces in the next few days, "so stay tuned for that."
Aside from Heart, other local stars who are taking action to help victims of Typhoon Ulysses include Angel Locsin, Vice Ganda, Jericho Rosales and Kim Jones, Megan Young, and KC Concepcion.
Ulysses, the 21st tropical cyclone to hit the Philippines this year and the 8th for the past two months, battered Luzon Thursday, November 12, with heavy rainfall and strong winds that left parts of Metro Manila and nearby areas submerged.
It left at least 67 people dead and forced tens of thousands of residents across the country to flee their homes, with some scrambling onto rooftops to await rescue amid severe flooding.
