Pop star tries to raise cash for tsunami-stricken country.
Pop star Lady Gaga has showed her support for victims of the tsunami in Japan by creating a fundraising bracelet.
The star, famous for hits such as Poker Face as well as her outrageous sense of style, is now selling a simple white bangle on her website with the message “Pray for Japan” in English and Japanese and an image of a hand.
The price has been set at US$5 but the site is urging shoppers to increase the amount they pay at the checkout to help raise cash for Japan relief efforts, to which it claims all the proceeds from the bangles will go.
Lady Gaga’s website sells a vast selection of official merchandise, including jewellery. Some of the jewellery on sale at the site, ladygaga.shop.bravadousa.com, includes necklaces with key, moniker, telephone and cross charms, as well as a rose motif ring in the style of Lola Rose.
