Stefani is especially close to Japan and its Harajuku district, as she wrote a song titled Harajuku Girls for her 2004 solo album Love.Angel.Music.Baby. She also named her fashion line and personal fragrance Harajuku Lovers.

As the Los Angeles Times reports, Stefani issued a statement yesterday:

“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 said in a statement issued Wednesday. “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.”

She also announced that she will launch a charity auction on the No Doubt website next week. Interested fans can bid to join Stefani in LA for the fundraiser. In addition, a commemorative Harajuku Lovers t-shirt will go onsale next week on the site, with all proceeds going directly to Japanese relief work.
