Add Lady Gaga to the growing list of philanthropists and saintly celebs that have used their known names to good use.
This Wednesday, the pop superstar made the announcement that she is launching the Born This Way Foundation.
After the suicide of 14-year-old superfan Jamey Rodemeyer, a devastated Gaga vowed to join the fight to constitute bullying as illegal. She sadly tweeted: "The past days I've spent reflecting, crying, and yelling. I have so much anger...It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life....Bullying must become illegal. It is a hate crime. I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end."
She used her passion and determination to create the Born This Way Foundation with mom Cynthia Germanotta, saying: "My mother and I have initiated a passion project...Together we hope to establish a standard of Bravery and Kindness, as well as a community worldwide that protects and nurtures others in the face of bullying and abandonment.”
The foundation will officially launch in 2012. We're with you!
