Staples, the office supply chain, recently partnered with Lady Gaga's Born This Way Foundation and DonorsChoose.org to donate $100,966 to San Francisco teachers' projects.
ABC 7 reports that the gift is part of a $1 million Staples donation to local teachers. Apparently Gaga and Staples have teamed up to demonstrate the importance of supporting teachers and students. It's not immediately clear exactly who will get the money and for what.
According to ArtistWaves.com, "At each city the BTWF (Born This Way Foundation) is organizing or participating in a variety of events that will support their mission of engaging youth to foster kindness, improve mental wellness, and create more positive environments. Pop-up booths and various information centers will also provide information on how you can lend a hand and make a difference by spreading the power of kindness in your community, and with local organizations in partnership."
Gaga, as SFGate reminds us, will be performing her "Joanne" tour at AT&T Park on Sunday. There, concert-goers can swing by the Born This Way pop-up and share an act of kindness they've done, seen, or plan to do.
Correction: An earlier version of this story incorrectly stated that the $100,000 gift came from the Born This Way Foundation, when it fact it originated with Staples.
