Lady Gaga is providing some serious monetary help to all her little monsters that were rocked by Hurricane Sandy last week.
The singer is making a $1 million donation to the American Red Cross relief efforts for the more than 4,000 people in NYC and surrounding areas without homes due to the hurricane. "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,"said Gaga on her blog. "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. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas"
Although Gaga made the biggest donation among celebrities, plenty of others have been giving more than generous checks to relief efforts. New Jersey native Chelsea Handler donated $100,000 to the Red Cross, Christina Aguilera was among the celebs who were part of NBC's hurricane telethon that raised over $23 million and Bronx girl Jennifer Lopez also made a sizeable contribution.
To do your part, make a $10 donation by texting REDCROSS to 90999 or donate whatever you want on the Red Cross website.
