Lady Gaga has dug into her fortune and donated $1 million to Red Cross Aid, helping those affected by Superstorm Sandy.
The star explained that the generous donation was also on behalf of her parents and sister, and reflected on her New York upbringing, saying if not for her home town she "would not be the woman or artist I am today,"
"Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours." she added on her blog.
Her donation comes after recently being awarded the LennonOno grant for promoting global peace.
