She might be a rich girl, but Gwen Stefani is also a generous humanitarian.

On Wednesday the No Doubt singer, 41, donated $1 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund to help with recovery efforts in the devastated nation.

"I've been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture," Stefani told UsMagazine.com in a statement. "The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking, and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years."

In addition to her donation, Stefani, who is mom to Kingston, 4, and Zuma, 2, is also encouraging her fans to contribute. Next week the L.A.M.B. designer will unveil a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt through nodoubt.com; all proceeds from sales will go to help in relief efforts.

Those who wish to participate immediately may donate now at www.savethechildren.org.
