Sandra Bullock donates $1 million to Japan relief

Friday March 18, 2011

Many A-listers have donated huge amounts of money to aid earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan.

But Hollywood actress Sandra Bullock has been especially generous, donating $1 million to the Red Cross to support its relief effort.

The charity revealed that it is the largest donation since the disaster, but that other anonymous donations have been received.

"The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for this generous support from Sandra Bullock and her family," the organisation said in a statement. 

"This contribution is vitally important as the Red Cross works to provide critical assistance and essential relief items in this time of urgent need for so many people in Japan."

The 46-year-old has previously given $1 million to Doctors Without Borders to aid the Haiti relief effort after the devastating earthquake there in 2010.
