Lady Gaga and Office Depot are taking on bullying through a collection of products that feature inspirational messages for school kids.

The products include Post-It notes that say "Kindness Sticks," Sharpie pens featuring the message "Be Brave," gift cards with messages such as "Be Yourself" and "Be Involved," and rubber "Bravery bracelets."

"Bullying has become a serious issue in schools," said Office Depot spokesman Jason Shockley. "We thought this collaboration is a great way to raise awareness and get kids to start talking about it."

Office Depot is also donating 25% of the sales of each product in the collection to Lady Gaga's "Born This Way Foundation," a non-profit charity that addresses issues such as self confidence and bullying.
