Eight days after Hurricane Sandy, which took the lives of nearly 100 people, pummeled the east coast; Lady Gaga has donated $1 million to the Red Cross to help its relief efforts.
"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," the New York-native wrote on her website on Nov. 7. “New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion.”

“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," the "Edge of Glory" singer continues. "Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas.”
The 26-year-old isn’t the only celebrity pitching in. Bethenny Frankel and Chelsea Handler donated $50,000 and $100,000, respectively, to the cause. On Nov. 2, the likes of Christina Aguilera, Jimmy Fallon, Tina Fey and more celebs helped raise $23 million for a Hurricane Sandy benefit on NBC.
Though certain stars have pledged money, others have taken a different approach. Ben Stiller was spotted serving food to Sandy victims in Brooklyn last weekend while the Jersey Shore cast is hosting a fundraiser special on Nov. 15 called “Restore the Shore.”
