Lady Gaga Gives $1 Million To Hurricane Sandy Relief Efforts

Many celebrities are reaching out to help with relief efforts after Superstorm Sandy ravaged the East Coast. Among the musicians donating money is Lady Gaga.

On her website, Lady Gaga announced that she would pledge $1 million to New York and the American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy and storm relief efforts.

“If it wasn’t for NYC: the Lower East Side, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today,” she wrote on the site. “New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion.”

Hurricane Sandy’s path of destruction stretched hundreds of miles on the East Coast affecting millions of residents. From power outages to gas shortages, there have been complications and tumultuous endeavors. Clean-up from the disaster continues yet many are still without fresh water and power.

Gaga, who has been busy abroad on tour, has taken to her Twitter page and Tweeting about her feelings on the devastation in New York and on the East Coast all week long.
