Born This Way Foundation has launched its latest kindness initiative.

Lady Gaga has long advocated for a number of causes like LGBTQ rights and youth empowerment along with her Born This Way Foundation. Now, the Joanne artist is launching her latest initiative -- a partnership with Starbucks to spread the simple message of kindness. 

With her Born This Way Foundation, Lady Gaga is teaming up with Starbucks for "Cups of Kindness," a plan to raise funds for youth programs that advocate kindness, create positive environments, and offer mental health resources. 

“We’re healthier and happier when we live our lives with compassion and our communities are stronger when we treat one another with generosity and respect,” said Lady Gaga in a statement to Starbucks. “Born This Way Foundation and I are so excited to partner with Starbucks to help inspire positivity and love through the Cups of Kindness collection.”

For the initiative, Starbucks will donate 25 cents from every Cups of Kindness beverage sold at participating stores in the U.S. and Canada from June 13 to June 19.
