    Lady Gaga may have had to abandon her Malibu home amid the California Woolsey Fire, but she has definitely not left the Los Angeles-area community behind. Instead, she's been devoting her time to helping her fellow evacuees.

    In honor of World Kindness Day Tuesday, the "A Star Is Born" actress brought a stack of pizza, fresh coffee and gift cards to one of the many evacuation centers around Los Angeles, posting an image of herself in a "Malibu" baseball cap on her way in.

    As she noted in a Twitter video, "Today is my favorite day of the year — it's World Kindness Day. I encourage you all to do one act of kindness, even if it's for yourself."

    "I am thinking so deeply for everyone who is suffering today from these abominable fires & grieving the loss of their homes or loved ones," she wrote in a tweet on Friday.
