This last year has been full of ups, downs, and unexpected turns. Through it all, one theme was clear: our world is demanding more kindness, and our young people are delivering it in ways that continue to impress us. Compassion is a critical value in creating a better society for ourselves and for
generations to come. That’s why Born This Way Foundation is doubling down on our efforts to build a kinder and braver world, and we are excited to celebrate the impact of the past year. Beginning with the successful kickoff of Hack Harassment, to the launch of our exciting new program Channel Kindness, to the widely visited #ShareKindness experience at New York’s 30 Rockefeller Center, so much has happened to drive our mission forward. We are excited to update you on Born This Way Foundation’s progress and to acknowledge you, the committed supporters who make that progress possible. Here are some highlights of the work we did together in 2016.
