    “No matter how unfair or discouraging the world may seem at certain points, kindness is actually abundant at all times.”

    Lady Gaga’s story is incredible. Plagued by massive insecurities and health problems, she has openly struggled with PTSD and depression from enduring years of sexual abuse and bullying. Through it all, she believes in the importance of being kind to yourself and being kind to others. She and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, founded the 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. These stories are compiled into this collection, Channel Kindness, providing a space for these youth to share their stories.

    “Performing an act of kindness can redeem and heal you just as much as it can transform the person you choose to help.”

    Contained in these pages is proof of a kinder, braver world envisioned by Gaga over eight years ago. These are stories from around the globe of young people performing random acts of kindness, standing up for others, and finding the quiet courage it takes to stand up for themselves. Her goal was to make kindness “cool”. To validate the emotions of young people around the world and eliminate the stigma of mental health. She believes the voice of these young people matters because they are filled with hope, compassion, and commitment to community.

    “Being a kind and respectful friend includes opening your mind to other perspectives, pushing yourself to understand someone else even if you haven’t experienced the same things, and committing yourself to being there in a supportive capacity.” 



    These stories prove that kindness not only saves lives but builds community. Kindness is about 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.

    This would make a wonderful gift to a teen struggling with anxiety, depression, or identity. It provides hope and a path to freedom through loving others and giving back.

    Lady Gaga has always been a trailblazer, someone I’ve admired in her industry. Her songs are all bops, but I’ve always appreciated her willingness to be herself, outside of the mold she is “supposed” to be in.

    When I was a gymnast in college, I had a mashup of Poker Face, Love Game and Just Dance for my floor music. I always tried to channel my inner Gaga since I wasn’t “meant” to compete on floor in college. It wasn’t my best event, but I always made sure I did my best even when I was doubted.

    This story is made up of personal anecdotes from people who work for her foundation, all who share personal stories about their struggles and what the foundation means to them. In every story, you’ll be reminded of kindness and how a little kindness goes a long way. That’s what ultimately helped each person, no matter the adversity they faced.

    The stories made me happy and I was reminded of the goodness in the world, especially during a difficult year most of us are having.

    Thank you Libro.FM for the ALC!

    First, I would like to thank Libro.Fm for providing me with the ALC (Advance Listeners Copy) of this book in exchange for an honest review.

    This was a heart-warming book full of stories that restore my faith in humanity. Lady Gaga starts out by sharing her experience with Channeling Kindness, and then there are an onslaught of stories by so many other people that really make this book what it is.

    I didn’t find anything OVERLY spectacular about this book, but it reached the goal it set out to accomplish. Therefore, I give it a 3/5 star rating.

    If you’re looking for a book that is going to make you feel all warm inside and leave you with an important lesson learned about channeling kindness, then look no further than this one!
