Lady Gaga was born and raised in New York, and she is determined to give back to her community following the devastation Hurricane Sandy inflicted on her hometown.
On Wednesday, Lady Gaga announced that she had pledged an enormous donation of $1 million to the Red Cross to aid in relief efforts across the tri-state.
In a post on her blog on LittleMonsters.com, Lady Gaga writes:
Today I pledge 1 million dollars to New York & The American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief. 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. 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. Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours. Sincerely, Lady Gaga and The Germanottas
