Gwen Stefani Donates $1 Million to Japanese Emergency Fund

After co-opting Japanese fashion for years, Gwen Stefani is giving back. Today, she announced that she donated $1 million to Save the Children's relief efforts for Japan. The No Doubt singer and fashion designer said in a statement:

“I've been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture. 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.”


Stefani is also holding a charity
auction to be announced next week, at which fans can bid on the chance to
join Gwen at a special fund-raiser in Los Angeles. A limited-edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt designed by Gwen will also be
sold on, with 100 percent of proceeds benefiting the
relief effort in Japan.  

Stefani says she's been inspired by Japan since she first toured there
with No Doubt in 1996, hence the clothing line called
Harajuku Lovers and the song “Harajuku Girls.”
