bradybundchenpic.jpgTom Brady's supermodel spouse is making a super-sized donation to the relief effort in Japan. A source close to Gisele Bundchen tells us she's written a check for $1 million to the earthquake fund created by the Japanese Red Cross Society. We're told Gi, who a year ago donated $1.5 million to the Haitian relief effort, is also sending $250,000 to the Pacific Tsunami Fund and Save the Children and another $250,000 to a Japanese Red Cross earthquake fund...Brady, meanwhile, is a little richer after finally selling his condo at the Time Warner Center in New York. The New York Observer reports that No. 12, who paid $14 million for the pad in 2006, has sold the 74th-floor spread for $17.5 million. The best part is the buyer: Robert Stiller. Who? Stiller is a hero to stoners around the world because, in 1971, he created E-Z Wider rolling papers, a favorite among hand-rolled cigarette aficionados (wink, wink). (Maybe he'll turn Brady's place into a spliff-level apartment?) Stiller later owned Green Mountain Coffee Roasters and oversaw the coffee company's expansion. The three-bed, three-bath luxury abode has sweeping views of Central Park and the Hudson River.
