    Lady Gaga wants her little monsters to show their charitable side.

    Hours after the 8.9-maginitude earthquake and tsunami hit Japan, Mother Monster debuted a new item on her website.

    “I Designed a Japan Prayer Bracelet....ALL proceeds will go to Tsunami Relief Efforts. Go Monsters,” the star tweeted.

    The white-and-red bracelet reads: “We pray for you Japan” in English and Japanese and features the singer’s trademark monster claw.

    In design, it resembles the popular “Live Strong” bracelets put out by the Lance Armstrong Foundation as a way to raise money for cancer survivors.

    Little monsters can get the band for $5 but are encouraged to donate more. The item will ship on or around March 25, according to Gaga’s website.
