Is in her best giving mood these days, Gwen Stefani has made public her pledge to donate all proceeds from her Tuesday October 30th show to the San Diego Foundation, a local charity which is helping the community recover from the wildfires that have raged across Southern California for the past week.

Stefani, a Southern California native, made the announcement alongside San Diego mayor Jerry Sanders on local radio station 93.3 KHTS on Monday morning October 29th. "San Diego has always been so supportive of me throughout my entire career ... living in Orange County, it has always been like a second home to me," she said.

"When I heard about the devastation of the fires at first I felt I should cancel my show out of respect, but then it occurred to me there might be a more useful solution," the singer added.

Stefani's Tuesday concert has been scheduled to take place at San Diego's Cox Arena and Mayor Jerry Sanders thanked her for the donation, saying the San Diego Foundation will use the funds to support its After-the-Fires Fund 2007 effort.
