After tweeting her love for New York last week as Superstorm Sandy barreled across the Northeast, Lady Gaga is making a grand gesture.
“A letter and a gift to New York and the American @RedCross,” she tweeted on Wednesday, followed by a link to her site, Littlemonsters.com.
“Today I pledge 1 million dollars to New York & The American Red Cross for Hurricane Sandy Relief,” she wrote in the open letter. “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.”
The singer, whose real name is Stefani Germanotta, continued, “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.”
My recommendation is Piggie. It is very simple to use and best of all, it is free!

People need to stop hating on Lady Gaga. She possesses the biggest heart of nay person I know. She is always giving, and trying to do her best to help out people who are in need or in a dier situation. If she could, I know she would give away all of her fame and fortune to someone who really deserved it. So instead of dissing her, saying shes "not an artist" have a heart people.
"“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."
Apparently, she forgot to add AUTO-TUNE to that list.
Do Not Give To Any Organizations! Give to a family. They are undercover robbers. Sorry, It is what it is!
“If it wasn't for NYC: I would not be the woman or artist that I am today."
Thanks a lot NYC.
"I would not be the woman or artist that I am today"
One of the funniest statements I have ever read.
are you NUTS? Red Cross will take your money and run. thieves!
She is wrong to say she is an artist.
Artists have talent.
amen to that.
whatever the reason-it's awesome she did this-if more people of her stature and wealth did the same-they would have more than enough money to get these people going again-haters will hate-i say thank you GAGA-you rock!
We are proud of her.
PLEDGE? Why not wait to give publicity until after the money is actually given? Weird.
with this gaga person
Anyone who gives anything to help is a hero in my book. It's cold outside and these people need help. I hope other wealthy people do the same thing. They get the tax write off and a family gets to eat. Win win.
Kudos to Lady Gaga. That's wonderful. she grew up in NY and had nothing, and now she can afford to help those in need. I think that's very nice of her.
I love Lady GaGa, and a I'm an old woman. I know the devasted of NY, thank you. And, you will be in my prayer's tonite, for your unselfishness. God Bless, you and the ones who have big heart's! You Go Giirl!
Very nice gesture. I wish to show my appreciation by eating her soiled diapers.
I love ur gesture Lady Gaga, oh! I wish all the rich can act like u! Knowing that one day the Rich will also CRY FOR HELP!!! LOVE YA!
Well, I am not going to say "nice job" and all that jazz. This is called self promotion. She's worth about 125 million. She wanted to see her name in an article and that is all. It is still a nice thing to do, however.
Did you donate 1% of your net worth to hurricane relief?
I, for one, prefer to donate locally and will never give to the red cross again after they took all the katrina money and used it to "update their infrastructure" (new computers). They have as much overhead as any greasy telemarketing solicitor
Amazing. What is wrong with people? Gaga did something nice. The end. Stop whining.
I think it's great she gave the money if she really cared though she could have done it anonymously
By making it so public she is helping remind people why it is so important to donate or help in anyway you can. Good for her!
One Million! That's it?! She can do 10 Million and wouldn't even feel it!
Just never enough. If she had given 10 million you would have said she could do 20 million.
Classy lady. I Love Lady Gaga*
That was awesome of Lady Gaga. And Babysitter, shame on you for your jealousy! She gave BACK to her city. Doubt you ever would or could.
That was very nice of gaga –
gaga is so jealous of you she can't think straight
I think it is a great act and more people who can do so should as well. I heard the Jersey Shore members were doing a telethon, you'd think they would personsally make a large donation >.<
If 100 percent of the wealthy gave 1 percent of there bogle than no one would be hungry cold and homeless. i need a miracle god please make me stronger so that i to can help others survive! i am humbled lady gaga!
FACT: DON'T GIVE ANY MONEY TO ANY ORGANIZATION...TAKE YOURSELF AND SELECTIVE 100 FAMILY
AND GIVE EACH FAMILY 10,000 THEN FIND ONE PERSON AND HELP THEM GET A SECURE JOB. THAT IT...
PEOPLE CAN'T BE TRUSTED WITH YOUR MONEY....MAYBE 10,00 TO A ORGANIZATION THAT IS FEEDING
THE HOMELESS.....BECAUSE WE ALL HAVE TO THINK ONE PERSON AT A TIME....IF EVERY RICH PERSON
GIVE ONE PERSON A JOB...THIS WOULD HELP ....AND YOU DON'T HAVE TO BE RICH...IF YOU KNOW OF A
JOB AND SOMEONE NEEDS THAT JOB..HELP THEM GET THE JOB.....THIS IS WHAT I AM DOING....I WENT TO ONE
COMPANY AND BEG THEM TO HIRE THIS PERSON AND THEY DID....THEN I MET TWO YOUNG LADIES WHO FINISH
HIGH SCHOOL...AND DOING NOTHING...I HELP THEM BOTH ENROLL IN A COLLEGE..BLOW NO HORN...
JUST DO SOMETHING....YOU WILL ALWAYS HAVE THE POOR....IF WE CAN HELP JUST ONE PERSON
WE HAVE DONE GOOD. SO RICH PEOPLE THINK SMALL AND POOR PEOPLE THINK BIG.
you must be right you are in Caps
"..." These things are known as an elipsis. They have a very special use. You should learn how to use them correctly some time. Else...
we saw that...you will be disconnected as soon as she leaves. thank you...
thats you alright-Add to bar joke comment list thank you
What are you going to do for us... That statement pretty much sums up what this once great country has become. We have lost our way & thats the TRUTH
So Gaga does something really nice for the hurricane victims, and you make a joke about it? What's wrong with you? What good deed have you done lately? You really have become one of the bigger jerks on this blog. And your new name, you are joking, right? What did they do, up your meds at the home? I don't think you'd know the actual truth, even if it bit you in the butt. And where did you get that "what are you going to do for us" statement? Didn't read that in the thread anywhere. Delusions, maybe? The only reason you've lost your way, is probably due to dementia. There's probably a little pill for that, too. It's probably covered on Obamacare, just for you!
we will continue to monitor the situation...our love doesn't care but we do. you abuse you pray.
texts are still coming into her phone and emails at the office–now be a good baby and blog nicely
leave her alone
that's not support....stopped the person from blogging..that is not support and we have the paperwork...so stfu.
and blog nice.
What about New Orleans that is STILL recorving from Katrina. Then we get hit by Issac. I understand that New york is where she is from and the donation is greatly needed, but really? Help some others too! You have many many fans here in New Orleans that have bought many of your albumns and concert tickets and much much more. We supported you, now what about us??
your not right.
