Lady Gaga gives USD 1 million to help Sandy relief effort

Los Angeles, Nov 8, 2012, (PTI) : 17:17 IST
Pop star Lady Gaga has donated USD 1 million to the American Red Cross for the relief efforts to help victims of superstorm Sandy.

The 26-year-old singer's birthplace is New York City and she has a soft spot for the devastated area, reported Ace Showbiz.

"Today I pledge 1 million dollars to New York and The American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief.

If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower Eastside, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," Gaga wrote on littlemonsters.com.

"New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion.

Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas."

Other celebrities also pitched in their donations for the hurricane victims.

Actors Ben Stiller, Alec Baldwin, Russell Crowe, and music mentor Simon Cowell, gave their donations to help various relief efforts in New York and the outpouring of support shows no sign of slowing down.
