Lady Gaga is giving back.

In the wake of Friday's shocking 8.9 magnitude earthquake that triggered a 23-foot tsunami in Japan, the singer has designed a prayer bracelet with proceeds going to disaster relief efforts.

Gaga debuted the $5 red and white wristband -- marked with the phrase "We Pray for Japan" -- on her Twitter page Friday. Featuring the phrase in both English and Japanese, the bracelet also includes Gaga's signature Little Monsters claw motion.

"I Designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet. Buy It/Donate here and ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters," the 24-year-old singer blogged, pointing fans to her official online retail store.

Since Friday, an estimated 200-300 bodies have been found in the coastal city of Sendai, the location of the world's fifth-largest earthquake since 1900. Scientists estimate the quake was 8,000 times stronger than the one centered in Christchurch, New Zealand last month.

In addition to Gaga's fundraising efforts, fans can aid in disaster relief by texting REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation.
