Gwen Stefani donates $1m to relief effort in Japan

New York , Fri, 25 Mar 2011 ANI

New York, March 25 (ANI): Singer Gwen Stefani has donated 1 million dollars to the relief effort in Japan.


The money, presented to Save the Children's Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund, will help finance ongoing recovery efforts in the country.


"The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking, and I want to do anything I can to help," the New York Daily News quoted Stefani as saying in a press release.


"I've been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture," she said.


The rocker first visited Japan in 1996 while on tour with her band No Doubt, and since then Tokyo's Harajuku area has served as the inspiration for much of the singer's work.


She has dubbed her backup dancers the "Harajuku Girls," dressing them in the neighborhood's famed nonconformist style.


In 2006, she released the Harajuku Lovers collection under her fashion label L.A.M.B. - a line heavily influenced by Japanese street fashion.


Stefani also announced plans for a limited-edition T-shirt to be released on next week and a charity auction that will allow fans to bid on a chance to attend an exclusive fund-raising event in Los Angeles - all proceeds to go directly to aid efforts. (ANI)
