Lady Gaga’s Born This Way Foundation has teamed with Starbucks to create “Cups of Kindness”. The new “kindness” initiative which will run through June 13 – 19 will help raise funds for youth programmes that “spread the message of kindness” and create positive environments – including offering mental health resources.
“We’re healthier and happier when we live our lives with compassion and our communities are stronger when we treat one another with generosity and respect. Born This Way Foundation and I are so excited to partner with Starbucks to help inspire positivity and love through the Cups of Kindness collection.”Lady Gaga
