Okay, we still gotta work on her compassion for animals — but let’s give Lady Gaga some credit. The girl knows how to donate some serious cash for the less fortunate.

She’s just announced that she plans to give $1 million to the Robin Hood Foundation, a New York poverty-fighting organization. And she’s enlisted her Little Monsters to tell her how to divide the funds.

Her Facebook page explains how this donation works. Once you’ve “Liked” her page, you’re able to choose among five homeless and poverty service organizations that Robin Hood supports. The organization with the most votes will be announced by Gaga at a May 9 fundraising concert in New York—  and will receive half of her total donation.

Want tickets to this intimate show for just 5,000 other fans? The “Poker Face” singer knows you do — and has even turned this into a good cause. She’s donating a pair of tickets to a lucky person who likes Robin Hood’s Facebook page and enters Robin Hood’s sweepstakes for the event.

Her heart seems to be in the right place and these events seem to be destined to shine light on an important matter. So how can we get her to also pledge money to environmental causes?
