Katy Perry has joined the stars attempting to raise cash for Japanese earthquake and tsunami relief by offering all the cash from sales of light wands at her concerts to the Red Cross.
The wands have become must-have merchandise items for fans, who buy them to wave during her hit song Firework – and Perry is now urging devotees to buy them for the survivors of last week's disaster in Japan.
In a tweet to fans attending her show in Hamburg, Germany on Monday, the singer wrote, "if u go by the merchandise stand, purchase a KP light up wand ALL proceeds will go 2 to #JAPANREDCROSS, and when I play… FIREWORK let's ignite the light for them tonight. I will be doing this for future shows so be ready!!!"
