I`ve thought of adoption: Debbie Harry

London: Singer Debbie Harry is keen on some social work and wants to provide home to children affected by the recent earthquake in Japan.

"I`ve thought of adoption, which I think I`d be really good at. Now that this terrible earthquake has happened in Japan, there will be lots of children needing homes," contactmusic.com quoted the 65-year-old as saying.

An earthquake with a magnitude of 6.4 jolted northeastern Japan March 29, after the same region was hit by a 9.0-magnitude earthquake and tsunami March 11.

Harry, who likes associating with various charities, also wants to set up a foundation to promote the use of solar panels.

"I spread myself around a lot of causes. I`m concerned about the environment and clean water and being carbon-free. I also support diabetes research," she said.

"If I were to do a foundation, it would be to promote solar energy. And I`m worried about drilling for oil. I think it is harming the earth, because it drains the layer of oil under the surface, and that could be causing earthquakes. It`s like we`re giving the earth arthritis. I don`t know if that sounds crazy," she added.
