Lady Gaga announced Friday that she will "fully fund" classroom projects in Dayton, Ohio, El Paso, Texas, and Gilroy, California. The "A Star is Born" actress wrote on Facebook that she will be working with her Born This Way Foundation and in partnership with DonorsChoose.org for these projects.

"My 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... Everyone has the right to laws that make them feel safe in their communities," the singer said.

The project will span 14 classrooms in Dayton, 125 classrooms in El Paso and 23 classrooms in Gilroy. According to the pop star, the initiative 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 involving photography and painting. She mentions the focus for these projects is on "prioritizing your mental health and checking in on your loved ones."

4. Help vote them out so they can get the help they need?

Or at least get us the help we need and who cares about these angry mean destructive anti-American worker class asses.

5. She should fully fund the primary opponents of the incumbent GOP politicians

Especially the incumbents who take campaign donations from the NRA.
I think it might be a more effective use of her funds.

Just sayin'

6. I love this but El Paso is emotionally strong, it's Dallas that needs it.

The shooter came from the Dallas area. El Paso seems pretty loving. Dallas is NOT loving. Dallas seems to have a lot of hate.

This country could do worse than impose “emotional regulation” classes and a heavy dose of art / music / theatre on all young men.

8. I left Dallas at age 17 to go to college and I basically never

returned to live. Dallas held no interest to me whatsoever. It was soulless.

El Paso was my mother's birthplace and where she grew up. To hear her talk about it, El Paso was a very violent place but this was a long, long time ago. Now I wonder about this city that my mother moved away from so many years ago and what it, and Dallas, became. Things got real for me when JFK was killed there. By then I was in New York and I had good reason to hate Dallas even more and stay away. Then my niece was shot to death in Dallas and I returned, once more, to the outcome of violence, now in my own family.

You might say I have good reason never to want to see Dallas again.

7. Why is it that nothing is ever good enough? Or good on its own?

Every time someone does something for good ppl here are quick to say it isn't enough of they should do something else?
Can't we say "good for her, she will be a help in the community" ?
Instead you all day it isn't enough or she should do something different.

9. Locking after a review by Forum Hosts

Sorry but this doesn't qualify as important news of national interest.
Celebrity news, even if great/interesting, isn't generally important enough for Latest Breaking News.

Please re-post in General discussion, thank you.
