Singer Lady Gaga is joining other celebrities is using her fame to raise money and support for the survivors of last week’s devastating earthquake in Haiti.
Her January 24th Monster Ball concert in New York City will donate all proceeds from both ticket and merchandise sales to relief organizations — as well as any merchandise purchased on her website that day. In addition, she’s also created a special edition t-shirt that will send all proceeds from its sale to various organizations on the ground in Haiti.
“Haiti’s still suffering,” the singer said recently, “and I was thinking earlier, because I was in New York during 9/11 and I always felt, the level of disaster isn’t in the neighborhood of what is happening in Haiti, but I just remember feeling nobody really understood. And I worry that young people don’t know enough about what’s going on there.”
