Mozilla is a proud supporting partner of the Tour & the Born This Way Foundation. We know how committed to the Foundation she is, and we’ve seen extraordinary effort on her part to inspire bravery and empower youth.
We made this project to help you send her a video message to wish her well and to support her as she works to recover her strength.

Hello Gaga Lovers and Little Monsters!
Mozilla Webmaker is a partner on Gaga’s Born Brave Bus Tour, and we’re deeply saddened to hear that she has sustained an injury. We noticed some amazing online video tributes here at a site called GagaMedia.net, but they had a limit to the volume of videos they were able to produce.
We noticed that a lot of people still wanted to contribute, so we decided to make a project so that more of you can make and share a personal Get Well video message for Gaga. We’re wishing her the best of luck for a speedy recovery, too, and we’re pretty sure your well wishes will keep her spirits up.
You can remix this Popcorn Maker project by adding your own video to the template:

Thanks again for the inspiration, GagaMedia!
