Lady Gaga Surprises Teens At Homeless Shelter, Hopes To Inspire 1 Million Acts Of Kindness
December 5, 2016
On Monday, Lady Gaga visited Harlem's Ali Forney Center, a shelter for homeless LGBT youth, to surprise the teens living there as part of the #ShareKindness campaign.
The goal of the #ShareKindness campaign is to inspire one million acts of kindness by the end of the year.
"I've been searching for ways to help myself," the singer and activist said, "and I found that kindness is the best way."
The singer, who has used her platform to campaign extensively against bullying and discrimination, particularly for the LGBT community, also expressed her desire to continue using her voice to do good in the hopes of triggering positive change around the world.
She told the BBC, "I'm sure there's many people who would say 'Lady Gaga's not [a] role model. Did you see this performance? Did you see that performance?' But the truth is that when I was younger... I didn't quite understand the amount of attention that I had [or] the amount of people that would listen to me.
"I am older now and I am aware of my voice in the world and I want to be as much of a role model as I can be through my music as well as my performance."
