Lady Gaga Raises 250K for Japan Relief Efforts
Lady Gaga is a celebrity that has become well known for her eccentric behavior as well as her philanthropic nature. It seems like the enormous tragedy that affected Japan just a few days ago has made a strong impact on the “Born this way” singer. Soon after finding out about the devastating earthquake that struck Japan a few days ago, the uber popular kind hearted diva has quickly designed a plan to make a powerful impact.
The diva herself designed the “We pray for Japan” wristbands that are currently being sold for $5 a piece. It seems like a gentle urge in the form of a tweet from the singer, which wrote “Little Monsters, show your support for Japan with this wristband,” was more than enough to sell 50 000 bracelets in just two days. Her fans managed to prove that they fully subscribe to the diva’s ideal to make a real difference and help Japan overcome this major obstacle. This encouraging news is a true indication of the true potential of the campaign.
It is important to note that 100% of the money raised from the sales of these wristbands will be used to provide relief to the affected area. These products can be purchased from Lady Gaga’s online shop at ladygaga.shop.bravadousa.com. Those who wish to make an even greater impact can also make additional donations.
Unfortunately, with the latest events that affected Japan, it appears that the campaign might last quite a while. However, making a difference does not have to be difficult. As the aforementioned facts have proven, even small actions can have an impressive effect when a collective effort is made. Other celebrities who have urged their fans to show support for the victims were Adam Lambert, Taylor Swift, Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber, Joe Jonas or Kim Kardashian.
