As soon as the 8.9 magnitude earthquake shook Japan Friday, a number of celebrities took to Twitter to offer their support and prayers.

Lady Gaga took an extra step to raise awareness and funds for the relief efforts. The pop star designed a Japanese Tsunami Relief Wristband for charity.

The singer posted on Twitter that through sale of the bracelets her fans helped her raise a quarter of a million dollars.

Monsters: in just 48 hrs youv'e raised a quarter of a million dollars for Japan Relief. It's important we help. X

I designed a Japan Prayer bracelet. Buy It/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsuname Relief Efforts. Go Monsters, she tweeted earlier.

The bracelet has Lady Gaga's Monster paw emblem on it and reads We Pray for Japan.

The wristband costs $5 and can be purchased off of Lady Gaga's website.

Mother Monster's site explains: Lady Gaga designed a We Pray for Japan prayer bracelet, but yours now for $5 in the web store and all proceeds go to Japan Tsunami relief.
