Greyson Chance to Support Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way Foundation”

Lady Gaga and Oprah Winfrey at launch ceremony

Greyson Chance told his twitter followers this week that he is proud to support Lady Gaga’s new “Born This Way Foundation.

The foundation officially launched in March of 2012 and is focused on bringing attention to youth issues including self-confidence, well-being, anti-bullying, mentoring and career development through research, education and advocacy.

Gaga partnered with her own real life Mother, Cynthia Germanotta, during the Foundation’s creation who commented,
“Our goal is to do our part to help make the world a kinder and braver place by empowering and inspiring youth around the country, and hopefully others who want to stand up for kindness, acceptance and love. We're calling it the Born This Way Foundation.”
With help from her mother and Oprah Winfrey, Gaga officially launched the “Born This Way Foundation” on February 29th 2012.

Greyson took to twitter to tell his fans,
“Proud to call myself a member of this charity. Join now! RT and tell all your friends!!!”
We watched most of the launch event and were surprised at how dry and boring it was. It seemed like a bunch of old, rich adults sitting around talking about how to stop bullying.

There was not one young representative anywhere to be seen and a search of Oprah’s own website showed no mention of the foundation or her participation.

Don’t get me wrong – we think this is a great thing, but with no clear direction on how they are going to raise funds and what they will do with the money we’re more confused than anything.

There appears to be some big money behind the project already including the John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, The California Endowment and The Berkman Center at Harvard.

But if Greyson Chance feels it is important to support this foundation then we will keep our eye on it and give it a chance.

Get it? Give it a “Chance”….

Ah, that never gets old!
