This is why she's our hero!
With zero publicity, no cameras, and wearing no make up Lady Gaga made a two hour trip to meet with HIV-positive children in the only orphanage of its kind in the country.
The founder of the orphanage, Anjali Gopalan, was delighted by the fact that Gaga called him up herself to discuss the visit beforehand. He said:
"It was utterly refreshing and surprising. Hardly anyone of her stature has done that before. There was absolutely no hype about her and she comes straight from the heart. Lady Gaga is well informed about HIV and told the children to take their medicines regularly and eat well so they could stay strong."
According to our source Gaga arrived carrying food she had brought for everyone - pasta, cookies, soups, peanut butter, bread and lots more. Her non-eatable gifts to the 23 kids included a 64-inch TV, Play Station, videos and 3-D glasses!!
During her visit Gaga refused to sit on the chair reserved for her and sat on the floor surrounded by the kids. Tears!!
Lady Gaga recalled her own childhood, saying that she didn't appreciate her own parents till much later in her life.
"You are so lucky to have this home created by Anjali for you,"
We are so impressed and inspired by Gaga's generosity genuine love for these kids.
