Beyonce showers Scotland's sick kids with gifts

June 13, 2018

Superstar Beyonce has showered gifts on some of Scotland’s sick kids through a charity campaigner who devotes his life to making children’s dreams come true.

Queen Bey and husband Jay-Z wowed thousands of fans at Hampden on Saturday night during their On the Run II world tour.

And the music icon decided she wanted to give something back to charities in Glasgow.

One was the John O’Byrne Foundation, who aim to put the smiles back on sick children’s faces.

The foundation were gifted eight pairs of specially-made shoes for Beyonce’s dance crew.

The donation also included a stunning crib for a baby, which John plans to give to a family in need.

John O’Bryne, who battles brittle bone disease, started the charity four years ago with £50.

He had three children at the gig on Saturday with their parents and will give each kid a pair of the shoes. He also plans to give a pair to a child who was too sick to make the concert.

Beyoncé and Jay-Z Launch BeyGOOD/Do Good Campaign

June 4, 2018

Beyoncé and Jay-Z have teamed up with two of the world's most prestigious youth-focused initiatives, The Prince's Trust and Global Citizen, to reward fans for being kind, charitable and doing good for others. Fans who volunteer through these organizations will be given the opportunity to win a pair of tickets to the United Kingdom and European dates on the OTR all stadium tour.

The BeyGOOD/DoGood campaign kicks off in the UK on June 6 in Cardiff, Wales, with The Prince's Trust, the youth charity founded by HRH The Prince of Wales in 1976, to help change young lives. Beyoncé also partnered with The Prince's Trust in 2014 during her solo Mrs. Carter Show World Tour.

Global Citizen continues the campaign in Europe starting on June 19 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. First launched in 2012, Global Citizen is an international advocacy organization working to end extreme poverty by 2030. In addition to performing twice at the Global Citizen Festival in Central Park, in New York City, Beyoncé has joined forces with Global Citizen through Gucci's CHIME FOR CHANGE with a focus on social issues faced by women and girls globally.

"The united efforts of BeyGOOD/DoGood, along with our amazing partners The Prince's Trust and Global Citizen, are calling upon you to lift your voices, lend your hands and share your creativity as active and positive forces for doing good," states Ivy McGregor, Director of Philanthropy (BeyGOOD) and Corporate Relations for Parkwood Entertainment. "Wherever you are and whatever skills, talents and resources you possess, are of value to others in your community, country and across the globe."

Beyoncé Supports Figure Skating in Harlem

April 18, 2018

Beyoncé has amped up the visibility of her philanthropic work after her historic Coachella performance. On Monday, the singer revealed that she would be donating $100,000 of scholarship funds to HBCUs. The four schools included Xavier University, Wilberforce University, Bethune-Cookman University and Tuskegee University.

Bey is now using her activewear brand IVY PARK to help to empower young female figure skaters through the organization Figure Skating in Harlem. Through the collaboration, the young girls were gifted with product from the line to help encourage them to continue on in their sport.

FSHarlem was started by Sharon Cohen in 1997 as a means to give girls in the New York City community a space to participate. Figure skating can often times be exclusive to people of a certain class and demographics. Cohen believed that the discipline required to partake in figure skating would help to foster the tools needed to succeed in school and through college.

As a part of the campaign, the FSHarlem girls modeled the Spring line in a short film. Cohen says they were “in shock” when she revealed that they would be working for the pop star.

Beyoncé Announces Homecoming Scholars Award Program

April 16, 2018

Today, Beyoncé, through her BeyGOOD initiative, announces the four schools to receive the newly established Homecoming Scholars Award Program for the 2018-2019 academic year. The Universities, Xavier, Wilberforce, Tuskegee and Bethune-Cookman, are all Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). HBCUs are institutions of higher education in the United States that were established before the Civil Rights Act of 1964 with the intention of primarily serving the African-American community.

On Saturday, April 14, Beyoncé made history at the 2018 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival by becoming the first Black woman to headline in the festival's 19-year run.

The jubilant set, housed on a pyramid stage with 150-plus cast members, dutifully in-sync, was the first time the icon returned to her home, the stage, in over one year.

The show, with its homage to excellence in education, was a celebration of the homecoming weekend experience, the highest display of college pride. The energy-filled production put the spotlight on art and culture, mixing the ancient and the modern, which resonated masterfully through the marching band, performance art, choir and dance. It was the impetus to mark her second scholarship program.

Beyonce's Pastor Says She Gives a Lot But Without the Fanfare

August 30, 2017

Beyonce doesn't name names or drop dollar amounts, but she's still having a huge impact in Houston ... with the help of her longtime pastor.

Rev. Rudy Rasmus from St. John's United Methodist Church told TMZ how he and Bey are mobilizing to help Hurricane Harvey victims, but added she commonly keeps her charitable efforts undercover. Might sound weird, but he says Beyonce's just not flashy ... that way.

Remember, Kevin Hart called out Bey and Jay-Z to donate to $25k. There are also rumors she's already given $7 million, but Pastor Rudy -- who performed the Carters' wedding -- says don't expect her to confirm any of that.

As for what he and Bey are doing for evacuees ... he explained what Houston's going to need most in the coming days.

The Houston native released an exclusive statement Monday afternoon to the Chronicle regarding the devastating effects still being felt throughout the city.

"My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help," she said.

"I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John's in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can."

BeyGOOD, launched in 2013 during the Mrs. Carter World Tour, is a philanthropic effort that partners with global charity organizations to get people employed and provide clothing, counseling, housing, food and medical assistance.

Beyoncé posted a black and white photo on Instagram of herself holding the Texas flag with the caption, "Texas you are in my prayers." In less than a day it's received more than 1 million likes.

Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world. It brought tears to my eyes to be a witness to what you and Richard have created together. WACO is a safe place truly Where Art Can Occur. I love you."

Beyonce FaceTimes With Teen Fighting Cancer

March 23, 2017

Beyoncé made a sick teenager's dream come true when she FaceTimed with the girl, who is battling cancer, on Wednesday, March 22.

Ebony Banks, whose nickname is Ebob, has spent most of her senior year in the hospital after being diagnosed with a rare form of stage IV cancer, and her biggest wish was to meet Beyoncé.

"She's like my everything and my idol," Ebony told KHOU. "And if I ever met her, I would probably pass out."

So her classmates and family started a social media campaign to make that dream come true. They shared messages with the hashtag #ebobmeetsbeyonce, which got thousands of retweets.

"Beyoncé is one of her idols," Karina Gutierrez, a sophomore at Alief Hastings High School, told ABC13. "She admires her so much, so we're trying to put that on Twitter and Instagram to get Beyoncé's attention."

It worked, Queen Bey got the message and made a FaceTime call to the Houston-based teen on Wednesday.

A short video of their meeting was shared on social media and shows the pregnant Grammy winner smiling and waving and telling Ebony "I love you" as the teen, who is lying in a hospital bed, says the same thing to her.

Not only do the drinks give back to your body with detoxifying and alkalizing benefits, but they also give back to the community through the Whole Planet Foundation.

According to a statement, “For every sale of any new WTRMLN BLND, proceeds will provide micro-loans to women around the world to begin their own businesses and lift themselves out of poverty. The partnership with Whole Planet Foundation will impact female entrepreneurs and small businesses around the globe.”

More than 50 million Americans go hungry every day. With those despairing statistics, fashion designer Tina Knowles and daughters Beyonce and Solange joined forces with Bread of Life, Inc. to make a difference. The Houston-based non-profit organization founded by Rudy and Juanita Rasmus aims to fight for the needs of the less fortunate with the fundraising campaign Miss A Meal.

"When we say 'we are starving,' we have to remember that there are people who are literally starving. If everyone fed one person, one meal, we could make a huge difference," says Tina Knowles . "To miss one meal is a small sacrifice to make in the fight against hunger."

According to a recent study, Harris County families struggling to keep food on the table have a food budget shortfall of $12.97 per week, per person. To fill the meal gap, $277 million is needed annually to ensure that every person has three meals a day. The Miss A Meal initiative is designed to meet the needs of the hungry by encouraging people to miss a meal and pass the plate by donating the money they would have spent. The donation is then used to feed those who are less fortunate.

"I was 13 and my sister Solange was 8 when we started donating and serving meals to the homeless after church," says Beyonce. "There were people from all walks of life, even children, who needed a meal. We learned that we are all three paychecks away from poverty. It was a lesson in humility for all of us." Solange adds, "There are dozens of memories of me and my sister volunteering at Bread of Life, we got to see firsthand how grateful people were to receive a hot meal. For many people this was their only meal of the day and we learned early on not to take anything for granted. I'm passing on those same lessons to my son Julez."

What started as an idea sparked by indie recording artist Cy Jackson 's song "Heartbeat" has blossomed into a growing movement against hunger. Miss A Meal encourages people to donate as little as one dollar, which in turn can provide one well-balanced meal through Bread of Life. Read more...
Beyoncé have come out in support of equal marriage on the first day that the US Supreme Court has taken on two cases challenging same-sex marriage bans.

Posting on her official Facebook page, the singer made bold statement in favour of marriage equality.

Beyoncé joined thousands in posting a modified Human Rights Campaign logo which went viral yesterday on social media, in support of striking down equal marriage bans.

She wrote: “It’s about TIME!!! #EQUALITY #MarryWhoYouLove”, in the post which over 60,000 people liked on Facebook within the first hour that it was posted.

She accompanied the post with a hand-written note which read: “If you like it you should be able to put a ring on it, #wewillunite4marriageequality”, a reference to her lyric from the song Single Ladies.

Beyoncé Knowles will headline a global concert in London on Saturday June 1, as part of Gucci's international campaign Chime For Change which aims to raise funds for female empowerment. The event, which will be broadcast around the world, will also feature performances from Florence and the Machine, Ellie Goulding, Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Rita Ora, Laura Pausini and Timbaland. The news was announced this morning at a press conference in London.

"Our goal is to call for change for girls and women in the loudest voice possible," said Chime For Change co-founder and concert artistic director, Beyoncé Knowles. "I am excited for us to come together on June 1 to bring the issues of education, health and justice for girls and women to the world stage."

As well as music, the concert - entitled The Sound Of Change Live - will also show inspirational short films and stories highlighting women's global issues. The event, to be held at Twickenham Stadium, will be produced by Control Room's Kevin Wall and Aaron Grosky, who were behind Live Earth and Live Aid.

Gucci will provide financial assistance to put on the show, so that all ticket sales will go to towards charities fighting for better education, justice and health for women. Tickets go on sale at 9am on Wednesday March 27. There will also be the option to choose which charity ticket sales will be donated to.

"This is the emergency and the opportunity of today," said Gucci creative director and Chime For Change co-founder Frida Giannini. "We have reached a significant moment in the history of girls' and women's empowerment and now is the time for change. On June 1 at Twickenham Stadium, I hope that The Sound Of Change Live will help the voices calling for change to become so loud that they cannot be ignored."
More than 50 million Americans go hungry every day. With economic downtimes increasing and the unemployment becoming the norm for so many people, iconic entertainer and performer Beyoncé along with her mom, award-winning fashion designer Tina Knowles have joined forces with Bread of Life, Inc. the Houston-based non-profit organization founded by Rudy and Juanita Rasmus, to fight for the needs of the less fortunate with a fundraising campaign they call Miss A Meal.

Miss A Meal meets the Needs of the Hungry!

Every day people like you and I simply decide to Miss A Meal and then donate the money that we would have spent on that meal to feed someone less fortunate. With a nominal cost of $1.00 per person to provide one well balanced meal, Miss A Meal supporters are able to donate multiple meals through a single donation.

Tina Knowles and Beyoncé have decided to take charge of passing the plate with the simple premise that one person has the power to help many. Miss A Meal today; It Only Takes One Plate!

Beyoncé Knowles, Salma Hayek and Frida Giannini have launched a new Gucci global campaign for female empowerment, Chime For Change. The initiative aims to raise funds and awareness in support of projects for girls and women around the world, through sharing "powerful stories" about inspiring females.

"I have always felt strongly about equal opportunity for women. Girls have to be taught from early on that they are strong and capable of being anything they want to be," said Knowles. "It's up to us to change the statistics for women around the world. I'm honoured to be in the company of women who live fearlessly and set an example for the next generation of young ladies."

The campaign will be officially announced at the TEDxWomen luncheon today by Salma Hayek, who will present a short film detailing the aims of the scheme - narrated by the actress, and set to new music by Knowles (watch below). The video is the first in a series of ten Chime For Change short films featuring inspirational women's stories.

"I am proud to be joining the growing international movement on behalf of girls and women around the world," said Hayek. "I believe that by working together we can change the course of history to ensure that girls and women are empowered to realise their potential and thrive."

The Chime for Change campaign is also joined by an advisory board of experts and global advocates - including Julia Roberts, Meryl Streep, Jada Pinkett Smith, Francois-Henri Pinault, Gordon and Sarah Brown and Arianna Huffington. Gucci has a history of supporting women's rights movements - including a seven-year partnership with UNICEF in support of girls' education - as well as founding two female film awards; the Spotlighting Women Documentary Award and the Gucci Award for Women in Cinema with the Venice Film Festival.

"This is the emergency and the opportunity of today," said Giannini. "We have reached a significant moment in the history of girls' and women's empowerment and now is the time for change. I think it is essential for girls and women to see and celebrate what is possible. I hope that through Chime we can help the voices calling for change to become so loud that they cannot be ignored."

We’ve long admired Lorraine Schwartz’s beautiful jewelry, spotted on stars including Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus. But the pieces these four celebs most recently sported have us dazzled for reasons beyond carats: Schwartz created them with help from pediatric patients at Children’s National Medical Center in Washington, D.C.

To honor her late mother, who died of lung cancer, Schwartz partnered with Gabrielle’s Angel Foundation to teach the patients, ages six to 15, how to create jewelry. They then designed pieces inspired by their favorite celebrities as a form of art therapy.

“One of the most memorable times for our family was when my mother made jewelry during her treatments,” Schwartz says. “It was so therapeutic for all of us. We still have those pieces and cherish them.”

And Schwartz had a big surprise in store for her students: Their creations would actually be worn by the A-list star for whom they had designed their jewelry.

Beyoncé posed in the bright, flower-inspired gems created for her by Jozlyn, 12, which prominently feature the color blue for Beyoncé’s daughter Blue Ivy. “There was a lot of thought put into that,” Schwartz tells PEOPLE. “Beyoncé couldn’t have been more touched.” She adds that Jozlyn is “obsessed” with the superstar, saying “She’s the biggest star in the world to her … and was beyond excited to find out she wore her jewelry.”
On the same day as the NRA’s press conference and a week after the tragic school shooting in Newtown, Conn., celebrities are coming together with a simple message: “Enough.” In a new PSA, Elizabeth Banks, Jason Bateman, Will Ferrell, Selena Gomez, Peter Dinklage, Conan O’Brien, Amy Poehler, Chris Rock, Reese Witherspoon and 44 more lent their voices for a Mayors Against Illegal Guns PSA that speaks about the need for a new plan regarding guns.

“How many more colleges? How many more classrooms? How many more move theaters? How many more house of faith? How many more shopping malls? How many more street corners? Enough. Demand a plan right now,” the PSA declares.

One of Beyoncé's music video costumes has been donated to a charity sale. The gold tuxedo suit - worn for 2011 release Love On Top - will go on sale this weekend.

The Douglas Hannant silk two-piece will form part of the Park Avenue Garage charity sale in Manhattan - which raises money in aid of New Yorkers for Children - and will carry a price tag of $750 (£465). The suit originally cost around $5,600 (£3,470).

The suit jacket has had the sleeves re-sewn on due to Beyoncé ripping them during one of her signature energetic dance routines, reports The New York Post.

The charity event is open to the public and will be held on Friday and Saturday in New York.
