  • The songstress is the latest star to support the relief effort in earthquake-devastated Japan

    Gwen Stefani is the latest charitable star to support the aid effort in Japan following the devastating earthquake and tsunami, donating a whopping $1 million.

    The 41-year-old singer made her generous donation to Save The Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund.

    Her support comes as no surprise considering her well-documented love of Japan. She told US Magazine: ‘I’ve been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture.

    ‘The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years.’

    She’s also offering fans the chance to help. A charity auction is due to take place where lots on offer include the chance to meet Gwen herself, and the L.A.M.B designer will also be selling specially designed Harajuku Lovers T-shirts – with all of the proceeds going towards the Japanese relief effort.

    Gwen is just the latest in a long list of celebs getting involved; Lady Gaga recently designed a bracelet which has raised over $250 000, while Sandra Bullock donated $1 million last week.
