As if you needed another reason to be obsessed with Mohammad Assaf, our Arab Idol has outdone himself. And he's not alone. Haifa Wehbe, Wael Jassar, Najwa Karam, Kadem Al Saher, Ramy Ayach, Nader Atat, Melhem Zain, and Rouwaida Attieh have likewise shown they're not just good entertainers for the Stars on Board cruise, they're good people too. The group of talents have partnered with The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) to raise funds for Syrian refugees. Yes, they are that awesome.

The Stars on Board crew have set sail on a mission to provide winter kits, which contain thermal blankets, heating stoves and heating fuel, for those in the camps during the cold, rainy winter season. The celebs have invited all of MENA to be a star too and give towards the refugee cause.

Every year superstars from around the region take ship on a cruise around Europe, providing entertainment for ticket holders on board.

The UNHCR website announced that this year these stars have joined forces with the aid group to lend a helping hand.

"Many stars will donate a valuable personal item in the show’s auction and the proceeds will be donated to support Syrian refugees during winter. UNHCR teams will be working around the clock to help millions of refugees and internally displaced people endure the severe winter across much of the Middle East," shared the UNHCR.  

To be legit like the celebs and join the #WarmTheirHeart campaign, go to the UNHCR website and make a donation online.
