leave a comment »


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.’ “
