Earlier, it was singer Lady Gaga and now it is singer Katy Perry and teen star Justin Bieber. The American singer and the Canadian singing sensation have urged their fans to donate to aid relief for the earthquake and tsunami hit victims of Japan on Friday. Their call came two days after the devastating tsunami hit Japan.
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.
