Lady Gaga has teamed up with Staples to support education and create a positive classroom experience through its Staples for Students program. As part of the partnership, Staples will donate $1 million to Gaga's Born This Way Foundation. The company is donating another million to DonorsChoose.org, an organization that has funded more than 900,000 classroom projects for teachers since its founding, benefiting more than 22 million students.
"Classrooms that are positive and welcoming are classrooms where students can discover their passions and unlock their full potential," Gaga said in a statement. "I'm excited to work with Staples, DonorsChoose.org and Born This Way Foundation to help teachers and students make their schools more supportive and engaging places. Kindness is one of the most important and most impactful values we can instill in students, and I look forward to working with Staples to foster a positive classroom environment where every student feels safe, heard and empowered."
