Led by Lady Gaga and her mother Cynthia Germanotta, the Born This Way Foundation was founded in 2011 to foster a more accepting society, where differences are embraced and individuality is celebrated. The Foundation is dedicated to creating a safe community that helps connect young people with the skills and opportunities they need to build a braver, KINDER world.
The Three Pillars of the Born This Way Foundation are: SAFETY (Creating a safe place to celebrate individuality.) + SKILLS (Teaching advocacy, promoting civic engagement, and encouraging self-expression.) + OPPORTUNITY (Providing ways to implement solutions and impact local communities.) = A Braver, KINDER World!
On a personal note, I’m so glad the Born This Way Foundation included the word “kind” as I feel that kindness prevents bullying. Let’s also remember to be kind to entertainers, they bring fun and happiness into our lives. Many musicians and actors reach out generously to charities not only with money but with their personal time. Celebrities can be easy targets, please refrain from engaging in negative, online discussions.
