Sandra Bullock donates US$1M to American Red Cross to support Japanese disaster victims
It is no secret that US actress Sandra Bullock is a fine and wonderful person. She displays a gracious attitude even when the chips are down. Ms Bullock has now generously donated US$1 million to American Red Cross on behalf of her family to help Japanese disaster victims.
A Red Cross representative has said: “The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for this generous support from Sandra Bullock and her family. 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.”
Celebrity donations are not normally revealed, but it is known that Sandra also donated US$1 million to Doctors Without Borders after the 2010 Haiti earthquake. At that time, this was the largest celebrity donation to be made public. Let’s hope by revealing her support, many other celebrities will follow Sandra’s example and make contributions to assist Japan to recover.
