It has been a very tragic week for Japan and the world. Relief efforts of every which way are popping up from the American Red Cross to signs promoting any help to save this desperate situation.
Linkin Park’s Mike Shinoda designed these T-shirts to help with the relief.
Sandra Bullock, who is currently filming ‘Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close’ with Tom Hanks, donated $1 million to the cause. In a statement posted on Entertainment Tonight, the organization said:
“The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for this generous support from Sandra Bullock and her family. This contribution is vitally important as the Red Cross works to provide critical assistance and essential relief items in this time of urgent need for so many people in Japan.”
Lady Gaga’s wristband sales have generated over $250,000 going directly to Japan relief efforts. “Monsters: in just 48 hrs you’ve raised a quarter of a million dollars for Japan Relief. RT: http://bit.ly/f0aYwZ. It’s important we help. X” Gaga posted on her Twitter page on March 14th.
Mark Hoppus, of Blink-182, set up an eBay auction with tons of the band’s memorablia with all proceeds donated to the American Red Cross.
Charlie Sheen’s “My Violent Torpedo Of Truth” shows in Detroit and Chicago have reportedly sold out in just 18 minutes and tickets cost between $35 and $75 and $1 from every ticket sold will be given to the Red Cross Japanese Earthquake Relief Fund.
The rich and famous may be shelling out the big bucks, but every bit of relief counts. Take a moment to show your helping hands and donate any amount you can to relief efforts.Tags: Amanda Seyfried, American Red Cross, Charlie Sheen, eBay auction, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, Japan, Lady Gaga wristband, Linkin Park, live show, Mark Hoppus, Mike Shinoda, millions, My Violent Torpedo of Truth, relief efforts, rich and famous, Sandra Bullock, T-shirts, Tom Hanks
