EL PASO, Texas (KTSM) – Lady Gaga announced on Facebook Friday morning that she is working with her Born This Way Foundation and DonorsChoose.org to fully fund classroom project needs in 125 classrooms in El Paso.
An additional 14 classrooms in Dayton, Ohio will be funded along with 23 classrooms in Gilroy, California where three were killed during a garlic festival a week before El Paso’s mass shooting.
In the post, Gaga says the funding will help students “have access to the support they need to inspire their students to work together and bring their dreams to life.”
She also took the time to encourage anyone struggling with the traumatic events that took place in El Paso to seek counseling. “If you’re struggling, please be brave and tell a trusted someone. Don’t be scared to ask for help, I beg you. 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,” the post read.
