"If it wasn't for NYC: the Lower East Side, Harlem, the Bronx and Brooklyn, I would not be the woman or artist that I am today," she wrote to her fans.

Of her hometown, she writes, "New York is relentless ambition, a drive to succeed, a place where there is a natural pursuit of diversity through compassion."

"Please accept this gift on behalf of myself, my parents Joe and Cynthia, my sister Natali; with our deepest gratitude New York for raising us."

"Thank you for helping me build my spirit. I will now help you rebuild yours."

Gail McGovern, president and CEO of the Red Cross, expressing the organization's gratitude for the generosity of donors like Lady Gaga, said:

"Hurricane Sandy's path of destruction stretched hundreds of miles and impacted millions of people and this will be one of the biggest Red Cross relief operations in the past five years."
