Gwen Stefani Gives A Million Dollars To Japanese Relief Effort
Stefani has donated $1,000,000 today to Save the Children's Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund to help in the relief and recovery effort in Japan.
Stefani says, "I've been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture. The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years."
Gwen has not only made a personal donation but created a mechanism whereby her fans will be able to participate in her efforts. A charity auction will be announced next week where fans can bid on the chance to join Gwen at a special fundraiser in Los Angeles. Also available next week, a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt designed by Gwen will be available through nodoubt.com with 100% of proceeds benefiting the relief effort in Japan.
Plans for further fundraising initiatives are also in current discussion.
