Gwen Stefani donates $1 million to the Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund. The money will go to Save the Children's relief efforts for Japanese children while creating a multi-tiered giving program.

Gwen will also launch a charity auction next week where fans can bid on the chance to join Gwen at a special fundraiser in Los Angeles. Also available next week, a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt designed by Gwen will be available through with 100% of proceeds benefiting the relief effort in Japan.

Gwen says, "I've been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture. The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years."
