Lady Gaga Donates $1 Million To American Red Cross For Hurricane Sandy Relief
"A letter and a gift to New York and the American Red Cross," Gaga tweeted Wednesday with a link to her Little Monsters website.
"Today I pledge 1 million dollars to New York & The American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief," she wrote in the heartfelt letter. "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."
"New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion," Gaga added. "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."
Gaga whose real name is Stefani Germanotta grew up in Manhattan's Upper West Side.
