Yesterday Lady GaGa unveiled her Born This Way foundation, taking celebrity philanthropy to a new level.
Her partners in the venture are The Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University; the MacArthur Foundation and The California Endowment.
Born This Way addresses the disturbing social issue of adolescent bullying, including cyber bullying, the act of anonymous online harassment and defamation. Bullying has concerned the superstar for some time. She has been vocal about the issue as teen suicides in response to bullying have increased.
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.”
