Over the weekend, Lady Gaga announced that she will fully fund classroom projects in El Paso, Dayton, and Gilroy after the mass shootings in these cities within the last two weeks.
Gaga revealed she plans to work with Donorschoose.org and her Born This Way foundation to fund 14 classroom projects in Dayton, 23 in Gilroy and 125 in El Paso.
In a statement shared to her Facebook, she said: “In this moment, I want to channel my confusion, frustration, and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves,” according to CNN.
As she continued, she explained how the classrooms will “now have access to the support they need to inspire their students to work together and bring their dreams to life.”
“We cannot turn away from ourselves. We cannot turn away from our loved ones. We need each other. Don’t turn away,” she said.
