Charity AUCTION in support of disaster relief efforts
Lady Gaga×TOMODACHI Charity Auction
Just ten weeks after the devastating earthquake, tsunami, and nuclear disaster that hit Japan in March 2011, Lady Gaga arrived in Tokyo.
In an MTV Video Music Aid Japan-sponsored press event with U.S. Ambassador to Japan John V. Roos on June 23, 2011, she sipped from a ceramic teacup with the phrase “We pray for Japan” written in Japanese across the front. She spoke with the Ambassador and the media about her love for Japan and her desire to support and encourage the Japanese people.
During the event she announced her intention to auction the teacup to help Japan.
In addition to performing a concert, Lady Gaga will turn the words expressed on the teacup into action by auctioning off the cup
The winning bidder will not only receive the teacup, but will contribute to a greater cause.
