Buildings in Japan shook, flung and fell apart by the score, and many fires ignited Friday. The island nation experienced the most powerful earthquake in its recorded history, and many artists are taking to their Twitter accounts to spread the word and ask their fans for support.
After a deadly 9.0 earthquake, singers like Katy Perry and P. Diddy tweeted to their fans encouraging them to help Japan’s relief efforts.
“Remember as you go about your day please #prayforjapan & if you are able, text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to Japan’s emergency relief,” rocker Katy Perry tweeted Sunday morning.
P. Diddy repeatedly tweeted throughout the weekend his thoughts on a necessary plan of action.
“EVERYONE KEEP TEXTING!! The quake & tsunami victims in Japan NEED US!!!” the rapper exclaimed.
Other celebs like Chris Brown and Adam Lambert echoed the unifying message. Brown asked his followers to donate to the Red Cross, which has won the Nobel Peace Prize three times for its relief efforts. (Impressive, and well deserved!)
Some artists, like Will.i.am., have personal connections to the natural disaster and are taking to their Twitters to express their deep concerns.
“I’m worried about my friends from smap smap, verbal, kage son, and all my friends I care about. I can’t reach any of them in japan,” the Black Eyed Peas singer wrote in the wee hours Friday morning.
Well, what are you waiting for? If you don’t know what number to text to, just glance over some celebrity’s Twitter. I almost guarantee it’ll be there.Tags: adam lambert, Chris Brown, Japan relief efforts, Katy Perry, P. Diddy, Will.i.am
