Lady Gaga to donate $1m for Sandy relief

Washington: Lady Gaga has pledged to give away 1 million dollars to the American Red Cross to help them with their relief efforts for superstorm Sandy’s victims on the East Coast.

The 26-year-old said the donation is a way of thanking New York City for raising her family and making the woman she is today.

“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,” CBS News quoted her as writing on her website.

“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,” she added.

The 26-year-old pop singer joined the likes of Bruce Springsteen, Jon Bon Jovi, Billy Joel, Christina Aguilera, who have stepped up to help with relief efforts.
