Sandra Bullock donates $1 million to Red Cross for Japan

Sandra Bullock donated $1 million to the American Red Cross to help the victims of the devastating earthquake and tsunami in Japan.

“The American Red Cross is extremely grateful for this generous support from Sandra Bullock and her family,” the organization said in a statement Thursday.

“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.”

Bullock’s amazing contribution is the largest known donation to the Red Cross since the earthquake and tsunami.

Bullock is known for her generous donations; she gave $1 million to Doctors without Borders to aid earthquake victims in Haiti last year.

The actress has also donated tens of thousands of dollars to a public school in New Orleans that was destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
