The 26-year-old singer made a huge donation to the American Red Cross Wednesday to help with the relief efforts after Hurricane Sandy.
“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 (real name: Stefani Germanotta) grew up in Manhattan’s Upper West Side.
Christian Bale may not save lives in reality, but the actor definitely tries to make a difference in the lives of his fans.
The Dark Knight Rises star flew 4-year-old leukemia patient Jayden Barber and his family out to California for a lunch date at Disneyland’s Club 33 earlier this week.
“Finally can share!!! Christian sent us to LA and we had lunch at Disney club 33 on wed,” Barber’s mother wrote with a picture of the two on her Lighting the Batsignal for Jayden Facebook page. “He and his family were so awesome and down to earth!!!”
Christian Bale also visited shooting victims in Colorado hospitals in July. Charlene Barber continued by sharing her family’s experience with Bale at the Anaheim theme park, “The entire interaction was like old friends having lunch. Jayden did not get star struck but was well aware of who we were with!”
“They talked movies and super Heros an he was genuinely happy to hear about everything Jayden wanted to tell him. Christian, his wife and daughter are three of the most beautiful people we have ever met! Christian made these arrangements for us personally and ensured we were treated like royalty. I don’t have even one negative thing to say about them. I can tell you that they were just as impressed w Jayden as Jayden was w them :)”
According to WYTV in Ohio, Barber was undergoing chemotherapy for bone cancer for two years before it turned into MDS leukemia last year. Jayden is now in remission.
Just a couple months ago, Bale was spotted in Colorado visiting shooting victims who were impacted by the Dark Knight Rises tragedy.
