Katy Perry made her request to her fans on her Twitter page on Sunday afternoon. She tweeted, "Remember as you go about your day please #prayforjapan & if you are able, text REDCROSS to 90999 to donate $10 to Japan's emergency relief." Today she once again posted, "Imagine... if we ALL texted REDCROSS to 90999 we'd have raised over 60million dollars for #JAPAN REFLIEF! BE THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO SEE! BE!
Meanwhile, Justin Bieber also sent a message to fans using the micro blogging site on Sunday. He wrote, "Japan is one of my favourite places on earth - it's an incredible culture with amazing people. My prayers go out to them. We all need to help."
However, Britney Spears, Yoko Ono and George Takei have also sent messages of support or call for donations. Lady Gaga has designed a special charity bracelet to raise funds for Japanese earthquake and tsunami victims. The white rubber prayer band, which carries a message 'Pray for Japan', would cost just 5 dollars or 3 pounds.
