Just two days after announcing her decision to release wristbands in order to help relief efforts in Japan after the devastating earthquake, Lady Gaga has already made a significant progress as she managed to raise over 250K in just two days. Get the latest details about the diva's success and learn how you can make a difference too.
Lady Gaga is a celebrity that has become
well known for her eccentric behavior as well as her philanthropic
nature. It seems like the enormous tragedy that affected Japan just
a few days ago has made a strong impact on the “Born this way”
singer. Soon after finding out about the devastating earthquake
that struck Japan a few days ago, the uber popular kind hearted
diva has quickly designed a plan to make a powerful impact.
The diva herself designed the “We pray for Japan” wristbands that are currently being sold for $5 a piece. It seems like a gentle urge in the form of a tweet from the singer, which wrote "Little Monsters, show your support for Japan with this wristband," was more than enough to sell 50 000 bracelets in just two days. Her fans managed to prove that they fully subscribe to the diva's ideal to make a real difference and help Japan overcome this major obstacle. This encouraging news is a true indication of the true potential of the campaign.
It is important to note that 100% of the money raised from the
sales of these wristbands will be used to provide relief to the
affected area. These products can be purchased from Lady Gaga's
online shop at ladygaga.shop.bravadousa.com. Those who wish to make
an even greater impact can also make additional donations.
Unfortunately, with the latest events that affected Japan, it appears that the campaign might last quite a while. However, making a difference does not have to be difficult. As the aforementioned facts have proven, even small actions can have an impressive effect when a collective effort is made. Other celebrities who have urged their fans to show support for the victims were Adam Lambert, Taylor Swift, Black Eyed Peas, Justin Bieber, Joe Jonas or Kim Kardashian.
