Beyoncé is a woman of many talents, however, aside from being one of the biggest superstars in the world, she is also a philanthropist. In February, the superstar’s BeyGood fund and the United Way announced they would distribute filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters and truckloads of water to residents. Now, she has put together something bigger.
BeyGood is teaming up with the United Way to help the residents of Flint, Michigan. The Queen B is reportedly putting on a “special signature event” in Detroit to serve as “a celebration of the resourcefulness of the people of Flint and Detroit, Michigan.”
According to CNN, the Flint fund-raiser was announced in conjunction with Beyonce’s collaboration with three global charities for her “Formation World Tour.” United Way, Chime For Change, and Global Citizen are all joining the BeyGood Foundation, which oversees her philanthropic efforts.
“The Formation World Tour creates another exciting global opportunity for people everywhere to BeyGood, pay it forward and lend support to those in need,” Ivy McGregor, who runs BeyGood day-to-day operations, said in a statement. “Through our collaborations with our strategic charity partners, we’ve created simple ways for everyone to participate. Because we believe together we can make the world better – standing, living and giving in Good Formation.”
Fans are encouraged to participate by getting involved with United Way activities or signing up to be apart of Chime For Change and Global Citizen, which all give them an opportunity to win tickets and concert upgrades.
