Until now, several movie stars, singers and other celebrities showed their support to Japanese people, by donating or just send a good thought to them. But somebody who turned out to be very generous and kind is an Hollywood actress, that recently won an Oscar for the best female actress. Sandra Bullock donated $1 million for Japan quake victims, and with this she also won an imaginary prize for kindness.
She donated the money this week to the American Red Cross, in order to support people who were victims of the huge earthquake in Japan. Her donation is the largest one made by a celebrity to the Red Cross.
This isn’t first proof of generosity that Sandra Bullock made. Actually she did this several times before. The first time was in 2001 when she donated the same amount of money for group’s Liberty Disaster Relief Fund after the attacks on September 11. Also 3 years later, in 2004 after the Indian Ocean earthquake and tsunami she gave the usual amount, and the last year when Haiti was hit by an earthquake she donated again $1 million for the victims.
Officials from the American Red Cross are very grateful for her support: “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.” they said.
Considering her last year earnings, estimated somewhere around $56 million, her generosity proof shouldn’t be a problem for her budget.
Anyhow the actress is a good example for every Hollywood star. There are many others, with much more money that haven’t made any donations yet.
