Lady Gaga is paying it forward.
When the "Million Reasons" singer recently visited the Ali Forney Center, a shelter for homeless LGBT youth located in Harlem, she did so on behalf of the #ShareKindness campaign, Today and NBCUniversal's celebration of kind acts both big and small. "Kindness, to me, is an action of love or a showing of love to someone else," the pop singer said. "I also believe that kindness is the cure to violence and hatred around the world. I like to share kindness in a lot of different ways."
"I love to give things to people that have nothing or less than me. These children are not just homeless or in need. Many of them are trauma survivors; they've been rejected in some kind of way," she said. "My own trauma in my life has helped me to understand the trauma of others."
