As if forking out time, money, and talent for the Typhoon Morakot relief efforts weren’t charity, celebrities have also began donating their blood to help the wounded victims.

The filming for Taiwanese idol drama, Momo Love was disrupted in Taizhong, Taiwan after Typhoon Morakot swept across the country, leaving behind a devastating aftermath of floods in the area. The concerned production team heeded the call of their director and donated S$3,500 to the cause. Taiwanese actor Ken Zhu, who stars in the show, went one step further and even invited fellow cast mate, Huang Jing Lun, who had the same blood type AB as him to donate the life-giving fluid to the cause together.

Although they were unable to attend the televised fundraiser held a few days earlier, the actors gave whatever money or help they could to the relief efforts. When Ken saw the news track calling out for more AB-blood donors, he immediately gathered Huang Jing Lun and Sphinx Ding, and made plans to head down to the hospital during their free time together and donate their blood.

As Singapore has never experienced such kinds of crippling natural disasters before, Huang who has been in Taiwan developing his career for almost two years shared, “This is the first time seeing something so serious.” Not satisfied at just giving out monetary and blood donations, a concerned Huang also made an appeal on his blog for fans to help with the donations and relief efforts.
