Amber Heard Launches Fundraiser to Help Sick Syrian Refugee Child She Met on Mission Trip (Video)

Amber Heard is doing what she can to give back.

Amber went on to talk about Weam‘s battle with thalassemia – a genetic blood disorder – while revealing that she needs a blood transfusion every 20 days, costing her family almost $1,000, which her family cannot afford.

Amber is now raising money to help cover the costs of Weam‘s medical expenses.

You can make a donation to Amber‘s cause at Crowdrise.com.

    That was sweet of her to do that.

    Why doesn’t she just cover the costs herself, she can easily afford to do it.

  • ZeusXearth

    Here she goes again, using someone helpless to climb the fame ladder. She is shameless. She was there. She could have paid for his medical expenses. But she had to wait until she could milk this properly. Awful woman. Her other fundraiser barely made half the target.

    phony B to the max…disgusting

  • Cool Boots

    Be nice.

  • Jean two

    I am sorry. Its hard to be nice, after her being so vile and so on in the last few years. I’d be nice, if she was a “better” person

  • Cool Boots

    You kinda have a point about the way she’s been the last few years. But what she did was still very nice.

  • Jean two

    Ok. However, Wouldn’t be more “humble ” if that’s a word to say. If, she just donated her money to the family, and not make a media circle. A lot of people, made comments about how she should/ could have said , be” involved , join, learn “. Better wording. Yes, its “nice, she decided to do something, “help” people.

  • Fas Fes

    With this argument you can kill every fundraising effort of
    a celebrity. That‘s why it‘s a nonsense argument.

  • Fas Fes

    It‘s her job to raise money for SAMS. She does a lot
    for charities, she doesn‘t need to prove something

  • Mastermind

    It‘s a very human drive to help somebody in need. Just because it was once again reduced to the max by the
    sharp minded Amber, doesn‘t make it disgusting but
    very human.

  • Mastermind

    agree, it‘s very sweet and very human

  • Mastermind

    Why ? What has she done ? She‘s a DV survivor and she walked through difficult times. Please don‘t come
    again with this old „she faked it all.“ After Trump jr.
    outed Depp publicy in presence of the world‘s media
    as a horrible wife abuser and Depp didn‘t response at all, the PR story is history. Just accept it.

  • ZeusXearth

    Are you telling me she also get paid for this? Ah well she has outdone herself in the scamming department. She doesn’t have to give money because she gets paid to presumably collect it. Despicable.

  • ZeusXearth

    She is a serial abuser and she never donated before her coming to fame by the men she associates herself with. So this is a clear attempt to pass herself for the charitable person that she is NOT. She can try as hard as she likes, but her face says it all.

    Look, it‘s a red rose burning !

  • MyName

    That isn’t true. Celebs often help to raise money for foundations which continue to help many people in need. When they give to only one then they do so themselves without needing to call a cameraman unless it was for publicity.

  • MyName

    Why not just put in a call to Elon Musk? He could have privately handled it. It’s great to give but sad when it’s used for publicity.

  • MyName

    She is a DV abuser not survivor. She was arrested for abuse. Her claim against him was never proven. Her own actions and history are why many dislike and don’t trust her. It’s about her and not JD nor anyone else.

  • MyName

    It’s easy to spend and give away someone else’s money. Why wasn’t she doing sch things prior to marrying for money? Yes, she wanted the publicity.
    Don’t let your left hand know what your right hand does, Matthew 6:3

  • Jean two

    Yes

  • Mastermind

    That‘s lie number 28 in this section from Deppies. Ms
    Heard is very well known for giving quite large amounts to charity for about a decade. But she doesn‘t want to talk about is, so I leave it there …
    Depp is the serial abuser. Some years ago he trashed a complete hotel room and was arrested for it. The police investigated and assumed DV against his
    then girlfriend Kate Moss. But they couldn‘t prove it.
    So you see, we really have a serial abuser, who
    should be put immediately in prison because he is a thread to the public. But as you know, the ruling
    0.001 % never go to jail, they are above the law.

  • Lucky Alexander

    This tired old argument by you is so pathetic. Kate Moss was in that hotel room and there wasn’t a scratch on her. That’s why JD wasn’t charged with domestic abuse. But Amber beat the crap out of Tasya van Ree, was arrested and charged with DV, spent the night in jail and was put on 2 years probation. As long as you lie, I will counter with the truth. Jerk.

  • Lucky Alexander

    Just what the heck does that professional liar Trump Jr. know about it? He wasn’t there and he is one to talk. He comes from a father who thinks it’s ok to grab a woman’s pussy! You are so deluded. Why would JD respond and give dignity to such a stupid comment made by an idiot?

  • Lucky Alexander

    This is all just damage control to mend her horrible reputation. The only people who support her are the deluded teenagers who believe her PR. Have none of you ever asked yourself why, if she is so brave didn’t she take JD to court and let a judge decide who was telling the truth? All her “evidence” was what SHE told her witnesses happened, not what THEY saw with their own two eyes. She would’ve lost her case and gone to jail for perjury, And she never was involved with charities EVER until she met JD.
