Gwen Stefani Gives $1 Million To Japan Relief Effort
2:30 pm, March 23rd, 2011
Gwen Stefani has donated $1 million to Save the Children‘s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.
The singer said in a statement, “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.”
Stefani visited Japan in 1996 on a tour with No Doubt. She took inspiration from the youth culture of the Harajuku district of Tokyo, later creating a clothing line called Harajuku Lovers. Next week, she’ll unveil a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirts, and all proceeds will go to to aid in Japan relief efforts.
Gossip Cop hopes others, celebrity and non-celebrity, will follow Bullock and Stefani’s generous lead.
