Lady Gaga to fund 162 classrooms in Dayton, El Paso, Gilroy following mass shootings

August 14 ------ Lady Gaga will finance classroom project needs in three cities in the United States that were ravaged by mass shootings recently. Over 30 people died due to the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio; El Paso, Texas and Gilroy, California. “I want to channel my confusion, frustration, and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves,” the singer said in her Facebook post last Saturday, Aug. 10. Lady Gaga will finance classroom project needs in three cities in the United States that were ravaged by mass shootings recently. Over 30 people died due to the mass shootings in Dayton, Ohio; El Paso, Texas and Gilroy, California.

“I want to channel my confusion, frustration, and fury into hope. Hope that we are there for each other and for ourselves,” the singer said in her Facebook post last Saturday, Aug. 10. The multi-awarded artist will be working with her nonprofit organization, the Born This Way Foundation, for the cause. She will also partner with DonorsChoose.org, which allows individuals to donate directly to public school classroom projects. The initiative will cover a total of 162 classrooms; 14 in Dayton, 125 in El Paso and 23 in Gilroy.

The charitable effort will provide students “access to the support they need to inspire their students to work together and bring their dreams to life.” Gaga, who has openly promoted discussions on mental health, encouraged people who are struggling to seek help. She also advised her fans and followers to check on others, saying: “If you see a loved one struggling, please be brave and reach out, remind them it’s ok to not be ok, and listen to them.” “We cannot turn away from ourselves,” she added. “We cannot turn away from our loved ones. We need each other. Don’t turn away.”
