No doubt about it! Gwen Stefani is giving back in a big way!
The singer donated $1 million on Wednesday to “Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund” to help with relief and recovery efforts in Japan.
"I've been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture," Stefani told UsMagazine.com in a statement. "The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking, and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years."
Not only has Stefani made this generous contribution out of her own pocket, she is also encouraging her fans to do the same. Next week, the singer plans to unveil a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt through her band's website NoDoubt.com, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefiting the relief effort in Japan.
A charity auction will also be announced next week allowing fans the chance to bid on an opportunity to join Stefani at a special fundraiser in Los Angeles.
