Through her Born This Way foundation, Lady Gaga announced last Friday her intention to fully fund over 160 classroom projects in the three cities recently involved in mass shootings.

The project will span 14 classrooms in Dayton, 125 classrooms in El Paso, and 23 classrooms in Gilroy, California.  Lady Gaga wrote on Facebook that her “heart goes out to those who were taken from us too soon and to their families, loved ones and communities who are left to grieve.” She’s hoping these funds will provide students "access to the support they need to inspire their students to work together and bring their dreams to life.”

Some of the projects include educational tools on emotional regulation, age-appropriate books, and creative modules that involve photography and painting.
