Long known for her affinity for Japanese culture — specifically in her image, her makeup and her Harajuku Lovers clothing line and fragrances — singer Gwen Stefani is truly showing her love for the country and her generosity by donating $1 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund to help the relief and recovery effort in Japan.

In a statement, Stefani says, “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’s personal donation isn’t the beginning or end of her efforts to aid those touched by this tragedy. She has created avenues for her fans to join her in charitable endeavors. She will hold a charity auction, the details of which will be announced next week, and fans will be provided with the opportunity to participate in an Los Angeles fundraiser with the singer.

Additionally, the fashionista and L.A.M.B. designer will release a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt designed by Stefani herself, which well be available next week. 100% of proceeds will benefit the relief effort in Japan. Plans for further fundraising initiatives are also in discussion stages.

Interested parties can go the Save the Children site to donate directly.
