Dwayne Johnson... Also known to many of us as “THE ROCK.” A huge Hollywood star,…
Lady Gaga chose US! What an incredible and unforgettable honor it is to all of us at Showering Love that Lady Gaga chose our nonprofit organization to share her kindness and generosity with. Especially our CEO, Jeanne, who is a huge fan of her music and incredible talent, but is especially enamored by Lady Gaga’s devotion and genuine kindness to others and the community.
We received a beautiful card with inspiring words and infused with vibrant colors and messages from Lady Gaga’s Foundation, Born this Way. Along with boxes filled with beautiful ‘be kind’ t-shirts. What an unbelievable surprise & touching gesture! We are still in shock and overwhelmed with gratitude.
These t-shirts brought so much joy and excitement to all our guests that were lucky enough to receive one. There are no words to describe the happiness on their faces. They were fighting their way toward Jeanne, as she was handing them out. They couldn’t wait and were ecstatic to get their hands on such a special and meaningful gift. It was incredible to watch, and experience the magnitude of Lady Gaga’s impact on all people alike. It is almost as if the t-shirts symbolize all the wonderful things she does for those who need it most. Everyone was eager to get and wear a t-shirt representing their appreciation for all she has done and given to others, like them.
Shared Goals for our Communities
Lady Gaga is always inspiring and promoting love, kindness, and togetherness. No matter who you are, where you’re from, or who you love. These genuine acts of kindness are especially amazing to us because Showering Love and Lady Gaga’s mission is so parallel. We work tirelessly on encouraging and promoting positive change for our society. By restoring dignity and encouraging outreach within our communities, promoting kindness and compassion, providing resources and support, and addressing so many other crucial needs.
Equally, Lady Gaga collaborates with so many to make a difference and focuses on empowering and supporting key issues facing humanity. Issues such as addiction, HIV/AIDS prevention, mental health issues, community support, and resources, just to name a few.
Thank you Lady Gaga & The Born This Way Foundation for supporting Showering Love
We also share a passion for our continued fight against homelessness. During one of her many events, Lady Gaga joined Virgin Mobile on her “Monster Ball” tour. VIP tickets were offered to any fans who volunteered their time and efforts to homeless youth organizations. $80,000 raised and 30,000 community service hours served!
On another occasion, a homeless man was waiting for her outside a hotel with other fans. He had an “engagement ring” he wanted to give her. She graciously accepted it and as she moved closer to him, he warned her, “But I smell” to which she kindly responded, “Don’t worry, I smell too.” She continues to spread kindness to everyone, and to those experiencing homelessness, as she goes out of her way to see them… they are not invisible to her, as they are to so many others.
We feel so privileged to be working on the same goals, hopes, and dreams. And, tirelessly trying to make this world a better place for all. No biases, only love.
Lady Gaga – “A Star is Born”
She truly is one of the biggest and most successful superstars on the planet, Stefani Germonatta, more famously known to us as Lady Gaga. She has a heart as big as her fame and is dedicated to Philanthropy. The laundry list of what she’s involved in is endless. Her name is synonymous with equality, diversity, and her love & acceptance of all people. Not only is she an oscar-winning actress for her jaw-dropping performance in the movie “A Star is Born,’ but a global megastar with countless awards, hit songs, and a resume longer than any red carpet she’s ever dazzled!
She wears many hats, and all are perfectly unique and exotic. She is also a record producer, songwriter, musician, and has even shattered a few Guinness world records. Her fashion is eclectic and unique and is always raising eyebrows. She is a true fashion icon and always shocking with her innovative and super cool looks.
Continually showing and proving that beauty is diverse. That being different is beautiful, and there is value for the different beauty that lies within each of us and it should be shared with the world.
Her songs have hit the hottest club circuits, sold out most concerts, and gotten millions on the dance floor.
She reinvents and evolves with each appearance and makes a loud statement as a social activist for LGBTQ rights. Yet, her philanthropy is equally as impactful, by helping and touching the lives of millions, just in a very different way.
Her music is like magic. She has the voice of an angel. Her lyrics are empowering and clearly speak to vulnerable populations struggling to find acceptance from everyone and so many trying to find their way.
Her music is filled with messages of self-acceptance, love & embracing who you are.
I’m beautiful in my way, ‘Cause God makes no mistakes’… Don’t hide yourself in regret, Just love yourself and you’re set, I’m on the right track, baby, I was born this way
Lady Gaga’s Foundation, and Philanthropy
In 2012, she started the “Born This Way” Foundation with her mom, Cynthia Germanotta. Their mission is to empower youth, address mental health, and anti-bullying. By continuing to work with young people and “create a kinder and braver world and validate the emotions of young people” and also “make kindness cool and eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health.” The foundation offers specialized and effective programs, strategic partnerships, and open conversations led by youth.
Lady Gaga’s “Together at Home” raised $128 Million for Coronavirus relief during a live-streamed concert she organized along with the World Health Organization [WHO] and Global Citizen. Gaga, Billie Eilish, the Rolling Stones, and Taylor Swift, were among some of the celebrities that took part.
“Gaga for Haiti” raised $500,00 for Haiti’s Earthquake Relief. Her “Viva GlamCampaign” with Cyndi Lauper, raised $160 million dollars to bring awareness and the fight against AIDS/HIV to women around the world. And this is just a small part of the difference she has made, what she has inspired, and the millions she has raised and continues to.
Lady Gaga is Love
She gives everyone without a voice an opportunity to be heard through her music, support, and love. Her beautiful voice has always stunned audiences, but her kindness and generosity have impacted millions. Lady Gaga has created a brand with the vibe of inclusión, non-bias, and unconditional love for all.
With her sixth number one album “Chromatica” released this year, she continues to serenade us with beautiful rhythms, and the integrity of her influential lyrics. They are true poetry and semantic gold. One, in particular, struck a chord (no pun intended.)
At Showering Love, we share so much with our guests and those experiencing homelessness on a daily basis. Sadly, they are struggling and face challenges most of us could not even fathom. Constantly paralyzed by feelings of inadequacy, helplessness, anguish, and despair. Their feelings, emotions, and daily struggles to live life, seem to be conveyed in the lyrics of 1000 Doves, written by Gaga herself.
“lift me up, give me a start, cause I’ve been flying, with some broken arms”
A great segway to remind everyone of what a difference you can make and the new “start” you can make possible for someone in need, with your kind donation.
My life has also been transformed by acts of kindness — both receiving and sharing.
