LOOK: Heart Evangelista Starts Auctioning Off Designer Items For Typhoon Victims

Heart Evangelista is doing her part to raise money for the benefit of those greatly affected by Typhoon Ulysses (international name Vamco) which devastated communities all over the country.

The actress launched a new Instagram account for this purpose where she has been posting many of her designer items and pre-loved belongings. Among the things she has posted so far are a Mark Bumgarner Filipiniana dress with hand-painted flowers she did herself, a pink double-breasted blazer by Balmain, and pieces from her Love Marie Floral Collection of personal air purifiers.

In a tweet, Heart revealed that she will be matching the price for which she bought the items and donate the full amount to charity.

Her auction comes amid online criticism from Filipino netizens questioning whether she has been doing her part to help the typhoon victims or not. In response, Heart said: “Camera doesn’t need to be ‘on’ for you to help.”

She later shared a few words of wisdom about letting go of the pressure of being “liked” by everyone because, to her, the only one whose judgment matters is God’s.

“Don’t expect everyone to like you. This is the most impossible task in this world but know this-they may not see your heart today but one day when you pass they will know the goodness of your heart-that’s just how it works. The only important audience to impress is God,” she wrote.
