Kindness is the driving force for everything Lady Gaga does. She has always believed in the importance of celebrating individuality, acting with empathy, and being kind to yourself and others. With this aspirational belief in their minds and hearts, she and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded Born This Way Foundation. Through the years since its inception, they've collected stories of kindness, bravery, and resilience from young people all over the world, proving that kindness truly is our universal language. And now, the Foundation invites you to tread these fifty-one stores from their young Channel Kindness reporters, celebrate their powerful voices, and join them in their mission to build a kinder and braver world by performing your own acts of kindness.
Kindness can save lives, build community, and connect us to one another, and the stories in this book are proof of that. Kindness is inclusion, pride, courage, compassion, self-respect, and the guiding light to love. As Lady Gaga always says, "Kindness heals. Kindness heals people, it heals the world, and it's what brings us together."
