Gaga says of the organization:
“When my mom and I started Born This Way Foundation, we were driven by the belief that a kinder, braver world was possible, and we were inspired by the ideas, stories, and voices of the young people who need that world to exist.
Seven years later, I’m so proud of how far we’ve come and of everything that’s coming next. We’ve lifted up the voices of young people to tell transformative stories of compassion in action and created campaigns that have inspired millions of acts of kindness. We’ve conducted research that’s helped to shed light on the mental health needs of young people and connected youth with the resources they need to support their mental and emotional wellness.”
That’s right. This foundation has been working hard to inspire the world for seven years! How incredible is that? Their fundraising has already made more than $11,500 in only four days. We are so excited for all of the progress Lady Gaga is making in achieving her goals. Overall, they hope to raise $20,000 dollars, and being over halfway there so quickly truly fills us with hope.
We’re halfway to our goal! Please consider contributing to @btwfoundation to celebrate 7 years and be part of what’s next. Every dollar raised will go to #teenMHFA, which teaches young people how to help their peers through mental health crises 💗 https://t.co/wpkzcm1qti
