Lady Gaga and her family have pledged a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy relief. Gaga is from NYC and tweeted about how much it pained her to see the superstorm devastate her hometown. She was on tour while the storm battered much of the East Coast, but she sent her love via tweets and by sharing a song she wrote when she was 16. She expressed sadness at not being there to help with her hands so she is going to help with her donation, which she shared via her Little Monsters site.
Below is her post about the donation:
To New York and The American Red Cross:
Today I pledge 1 million dollars to New York & 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. New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion. Please accept this gift on behalf of myself, my parents Joe and Cynthia, and my sister Natali; with our deepest gratitude New York for raising us. Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas.
