Your #1 Source for all things Lady Gaga here on Tumblr since 2009.

I have loved every minute of building the Born This Way Foundation with my daughter, but two things really stand out: The tremendous enthusiasm you have shown for our work (I never thought I would be a trending topic on Twitter!), and the heartfelt stories of bravery you have shared.

I want to thank you again for all you have shared: your stories, your kindness, and your support. You have made my year, and I am so excited for what the Born This Way Foundation has in store for you in 2012.

A very happy and safe New Year to you and your loved ones!

- Cynthia Germanotta - Co-founder and President of the BTW Foundation, and Mother of Lady Gaga.
