Celebrities Use Their Fame for Japan Relief Efforts
As you should already know, Japan experienced a 9.0 earthquake followed by a tsunami with waves about 30 feet high engulfing 95% of Northern Japan and destroying everything that was there. News about this disaster was on every news station, and just watching footage of this event was truly jaw-dropping. I know all of us would like to help Japan in their time of need, so here's some ways you can not only pray for them, but also help donate for relief efforts.
Lady Gaga designed a bracelet with the words "We Pray for Japan" in both Japanese and English. The price is $5 and all the money collected will be strictly for relief efforts.
Mike Shinoda from Linkin Park, partnered with Music for Relief to design a T-shirt to be sold for the cause. It is currently in the process of voting which design fans would like to be the official shirt sold. You can vote here: http://mikeshinoda.com/2011/03/11/help-me-choose-which-tee-we-should-make/
Charlie Sheen says that $1 for every ticket sold for his upcoming live show "My Violent Torpedo of Truth/Defeat is Not An Option Show" will be donated to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund.
Most of the celebrities are turning to Twitter to express their support for Japan. Katy Perry, Conan O'Brien, Diddy, and Chris Brown amongst others are choosing Red Cross as their choice for relief efforts. Just text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 and don't forget to keep praying for them and peace around the world!!!
