Lady Gaga Designs Bracelet For Japan Disaster Relief

The big-hearted star has launched an appeal to help victims of the tsunami…

Lady GaGa is raising money to help those affected by the earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

She has designed a bracelet, a white rubber band, featuring her trademark monster’s claw and the slogan We Pray For Japan, which is written in both English and Japanese.

An announcement on her official website read: "Lady GaGa designed a We Pray For Japan prayer bracelet, buy yours now for $5 in the web store and all proceeds go to Japan tsunami relief."

She also urged her 8.7 million Twitter followers to participate: "I Designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy It/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters."

The bracelets are available from 25 March but can be pre-ordered on the Poker Face star’s official website for £3.

This isn’t the first time generous GaGa has done her bit for charity – after the Haiti earthquake she donated over $500,000 to a relief fund.

Other celebrities who have used Twitter to offer their condolences to Japan or encourage donations include Justin Bieber, Diddy, Britney Spears and Japanese stars Yoko Ono and Star Trek actor George Takei.

  1. I think its absolutely great what Lady Gaga is doing to help the disaster struck people in Japan. I really hope a lot of other celebrities are going to follow in her footsteps.

    This catastrophe in Japan is of unprecedented proportions and we should all do our utmost best to help those people.
