For Lady Gaga, kindness is the driving force behind everything she says and does.
The quiet power of kindness can change the way we view one another, our communities, and even ourselves. She embodies this mission, and through her work, brings more kindness into our world every single day.
Lady Gaga has always believed in the importance of being yourself, being kind to yourself, and being kind to others, no matter who they are or where they come from. With that sentiment in mind, she and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit organization dedicated to making the world a kinder and braver place. Through the years, they've collected stories of kindness, bravery and resilience from young people all over the world, proving that kindness truly is the universal language. And now, we invite you to read these stories and follow along as each and every young author finds their voice just as Lady Gaga has found hers.
Within these pages, you’ll meet young changemakers who found their inner strength, who prevailed in the face of bullies, who started their own social movements, who decided to break through the mental health stigma and share how they felt, who created safe spaces for LGBTQ+ youth, and who have embraced kindness with every fiber of their being by helping others without the expectation of anything in return.
In one story, you’ll read about a young person with an autoimmune disease, who after being bullied at school, learned how to practice self-love and started an organization with the mission of educating others about the importance of self-love, too; and in another story, you’ll meet a young person who decided to start a movement to help eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health and encouraged others to talk about their feelings openly and honestly, a reminder that kindness and mental wellness go hand in hand.
Not only were we moved by these individual acts of kindness, but we were also touched by the many stories of organizations, neighborhoods, and entire communities that fully dedicated themselves to helping those in need and found new, innovative ways to make our world a kinder and braver place.
Individually and collectively, these stories prove that kindness not only saves lives but builds community. Kindness is inclusion, it is pride, it is empathy, it is compassion, it is self-respect and it is the guiding light to love. Kindness is always transformational, and its never-ending ripples result in even more kind acts that can change our lives, our communities, and our world.

Shipping and Handling
Media Mail is a cost-effective way to send non time sensitive media materials through the U.S. Postal Service. While the USPS estimates that Media Mail will arrive in 2 to 10 days we have seen some packages take much longer (the USPS says that this method can, at times, take up to two months to deliver). Media Mail items are not insured and are subject to postal inspection. The USPS retains the right to open and inspect your package to check for abuse of the system such as including an item not on their approved items list. Unfortunately, when a package is inspected, it is often poorly re-packaged before delivery to the customer. Clients who choose Media Mail as a low cost option will not be provided with a replacement book if their copy arrives damaged as this method is not insurable.
Priority Mail and UPS Ground while more expensive options, these methods deliver within 2 - 6 business days. If your order is time sensitive and you want to ensure your book arrives without damages, we recommend upgrading your shipping speed to either Priority Mail or UPS Ground. Both of these methods offer package delivery insurance and we will replace your copy if it was damaged in transit. That being said, if you have participated in a limited time signed copy promotion there are very limited copies available of extra signed copies. These replacements will be provided to customers on a first come first served basis and we may not be able to replace copies for all customers if there are multiple claims for damages in transit.
