Lady Gaga Donates Wristband Proceeds to Japan Relief Efforts
In response to the devastating tsunami and earthquake that hit Japan on Friday (Mar. 11), Lady Gaga has designed a "Japan Prayer Bracelet," with all proceeds for the wristband going to relief efforts. The pop star posted the announcement on Twitter on Friday and provided a link to the item on the official store of her website.
The white wristband features the phrase "We Pray for Japan" written in both Japanese and English, as well as a pair of red hands making a clawing gesture. Each bracelet costs $5.00, but fans can make additional donations of up to $100 per wristband.
Gaga -- whose latest single, "Born This Way," notched its fourth frame atop the Hot 100 last week -- is one of many music stars to react online to the 8.9-magnitude earthquake which shook Japan and generated a tsunami of over 20 feet on Friday. Justin Bieber, Taylor Swift, Britney Spears and the Black Eyed Peas were among the artists to express their thoughts about the tragedy and send their prayers on Twitter.
