Lorde has tweeted words of kindness for Kiwis affected by the 7.5 magnitude earthquake that killed two and has caused ongoing havoc.

Ella Yelich-O'Connor told her followers to "stay safe and help out in any way you can".

"my heart goes out to new zealand and everyone affected by this quake. we are made of tough stuff"

This is not the first time Yelich-O'Connor has expressed her kindness this year. Last month she donated $10,000 to help a struggling West Auckland family fix their leaky home.


In June she donated $20,000 to a struggling Hutt Valley charity called Fuel the Need that feeds hungry school children.
