Lady Gaga Donates $1.5 million to Japan, Save the Children

She may be turning 25 Monday, but Lady Gaga is celebrating her birthday by giving back—the pop star will donate $1.5 million to Save the Children and the American Red Cross for disaster relief in Japan. Gaga raised the money through sales of her "We Pray for Japan" plastic wristbands on her website with the help of Zynga, an online company offering virtual goods. She has every intention of continuing her creative philanthropy: Gaga is announcing a contest to raise more money for Japan and will fly the winner to meet her at a show during her current Monster Ball Tour.
