Beyoncé Is Collaborating With Balmain on a Charitable Capsule Collection

July 11, 2018

Just before Coachella was rechristened Beychella, Beyoncé Knowles and Balmain creative director Olivier Rousteing had an idea. It happened in a rehearsal, while Beyoncé and her dancers were practicing in their Balmain-made looks inspired by the marching band uniforms of America’s historically black colleges and universities. “When she saw all the dancers loving the outfit—and she was loving her own outfit—she realized that what we were creating on stage for her, for all the dancers, was something really impactful,” says Rousteing. It clicked: Why not make a Beyoncé x Balmain collaboration that could make those poignant graphics available to all of Bey’s fans clamoring for a piece of history?

On Friday, July 13, Balmain will launch a three-piece Balmain x Beyoncé collection in its Paris flagship, with the items going on sale on balmain.com and beyonce.com the following day. Comprised of the yellow and pink sweatshirts Beyoncé wore on stage at Coachella, the collection also includes a black tee with the same sorority-inspired graphic.

“I worked really long with her on the Beychella moments, and the fact that we can release this collaboration that is based on our creativity, Beyoncé and I, is really a big, big step for fashion and music together,” continues the designer. “Beyoncé, she’s such a perfectionist; she’s someone that is so strong and has such a great point of view. She’s about feminism, empowering women, and the idea of bringing that collaboration where we can share the same ideas, the same vision of music, the same vision of fashion, the same vision of what is going on in the world, it’s more than just clothes. It’s a strong message, and I’m really proud to be a part of that.”

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.

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.

Mom, you inspire us all to be generous, selfless, positive, to have empathy, to love and to praise creativity in the world.

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.

In honor of World Humanitarian day, we’ve brought back the opportunity to #BeyGOOD and support the children of Haiti!

In May 2015, on a humanitarian trip to the island of Haiti, Beyoncé visited local programs in a personal capacity to continue her support of previously funded programs and to learn more about humanitarian activities.

While on location, Beyoncé visited the Saint Damien Hospital in Tabarre. Funded completely through private contributions to NPH worldwide, St. Damien provides high quality medical treatment for disadvantaged and sick children in Haiti and has associated public health and community programs that reach more than 90,000 children and adults annually.

CHIME FOR CHANGE and Global Citizen are proud to announce a long-term partnership to build a global campaign that will create change for girls and women around the world. Global Citizen’s community of people wants to learn about the critical issues facing women, and to take action in support of them.

Gender equality is fundamental to Global Citizen’s long-term objective of ending extreme poverty by 2030. Women account for half of the world’s population, but three-fifths of those in extreme poverty. Women also perform two-thirds of the world’s working hours, yet earn only ten per cent of the world’s income, and own less than one per cent of the world’s property.

This partnership will provide CHIME FOR CHANGE a global platform – GlobalCitizen.org – to engage millions of people around the world by educating and encouraging them to take meaningful action in support of girls and women. Together, these two groups will aim to achieve measurable outcomes for girls’ and women’s issues, leveraging the combination of their powerful platforms, communities, partners and influence.

In addition, Gucci and CHIME FOR CHANGE will serve as Presenting Partners at the 2015 Global Citizen Festival on the Great Lawn in Central Park on September 26 in New York City.
On May 16, 2015, Beyoncé embarked on a humanitarian trip to the island of Haiti to visit local programs in a personal capacity to continue her support of previously funded programs and learn more about humanitarian activities.

While on location, Beyoncé visited the Saint Damien Hospital in Tabarre. Funded completely through private contributions to NPH worldwide, St. Damien provides high quality medical treatment for disadvantaged and sick children in Haiti and has associated public health and community programs that reach more than 90,000 children and adults annually.

However, due to a recent reduction in funding commitment, the hospital has lost the equivalent of two months of funding resulting in significant cutbacks both in staff (450 Haitians are employed here) and in the number of children that can be treated. As an immediate result there are now empty wards, reduced oncology intake, the reduction in the residents program that trains Haitian Doctors, and hundreds of children who are turned away from medical care they desperately need.

Your purchase of a BeyGOOD Haiti t-shirt can help solve an urgent funding crisis with all proceeds from sales of this shirt directly aiding St. Damien in re-opening an abandoned wing and continuing to aid the people of Haiti.

On May 16, 2015 Valerie Amos the Emergency Relief Coordinator, UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (UNOCHA) accompanied Beyoncé on a humanitarian trip to the island of Haiti. During the trip, Beyoncé visited multiple local programs in a personal capacity to learn more about humanitarian activities.

First stop was the IDP Camp in Caradeux, one of many earthquake settlement camps still in Haiti following the destruction of the 2010 earthquake. The overall people in need of humanitarian assistance has decreased considerably and the number of people displaced in camps has dropped to about 65,000 a 96% reduction from July 2010. but with More than 65,000 Haitians still living in settlement camps, the need for assistance is dire.

Following visits to the camp, the team visited the NPH Saint Damien Hospital in Tabarre, Haiti. Funded through private contributions to NPH worldwide, St. Damien provides high quality medical treatment for disadvantaged and sick children in Haiti and has associated public health and community programs of reach over 90,000 children and adults annually.

The trip also included a tour of the IDP Relocation site in Morne Nazare and a helicopter trip over Port-au-Prince to see progress of the structural reconstruction since the devastation of the 2010 earthquake.
Thanksgiving marks the kick off of holiday season. Many of us are fortunate enough to associate the holidays with an over abundance of food and gifts, not every family is so lucky.

Infused with the giving spirit, BeyGOOD made the dedication to support two organizations that provided outreach to more than 150 families in three shelters in the Bronx, New York, and nearly 80 families through a community hospital in Harlem, New York.

Initially, we set out on the journey to provide turkeys with our own budget in mind, but as absolute proof that doing good inspires others to do good, John and Ruth Brown stepped up to the plate and personally committed to donating turkeys.

We first met John and Ruth in Las Vegas last year during the Mrs. Carter Show World Tour. They had BeyGOOD stickers on so they were upgraded to the BeyStage. They asked to stay in touch so they could continue to carry the message of BeyGOOD and a year later they absolutely embodied the heart of real BeyGOOD Ambassadors! As the General Manager of a meat company, John and his wife Ruth committed to personally covering the cost of paying for half of the turkeys. After being inspired by John and Ruth, John’s boss, Ed, and a fellow meat distributor, also committed to donating turkeys because being GOOD inspires everyone!

Thanks to their giving spirits, and the spirit of BeyGOOD, we were able to support 250 families, assuring they would enjoy a hearty Thanksgiving meal.

Follow us on Twitter @BeyGOOD and share your stories of how you plan to give back and #BeyGOOD this holiday season.

With nearly 2,500 people showing up to the Houston donation site over the course of 5 days, the amount of food collected exceeded expectations. Thanks to the generosity of the people of Houston, The Houston Food Bank and Bread of Life were able to raise more than 10 tons of food that will help feed thousands of families facing hunger in the Houston area.

Thank you, Houston for joining the #BeyGOOD movement to help make a difference for those that need it most. We are all in this together and this food drive was proof that each and every one of us can make a difference by giving back.

Beyonce’s charitable efforts may have been questioned by the likes of Harry Belafonte, but her longtime pastor Rudy Rasmus sings a completely different tune. According to the Houston church leader, Mrs. Carter has been instrumental in his ministry.

In an interview with local news station KHOU, Rasmus shares that Beyonce dropped $7 million on a housing complex that now provides homes to 42 previously homeless people.

“She’s doing great things, matter of fact, phenomenal things,” Rasmus said in support of the singer. “ has a global platform and is doing some amazing work. And I’m glad she’s a friend of mine.”

Rasmus, who also officiated Beyonce and Jay Z’s wedding, dispelled rumors of trouble in paradise between the couple, saying that he gives validity to things “based on conversation with the person.” He also recalled Bey’s pre-stardom days of singing in his church.

“She’s an incredible human being, has an incredible heart, and has been extremely helpful in our mission, in our ministry here,” he said.

Protesters across Nigeria have been rallying to draw attention to the plight of the girls, and encourage local and international military action. Initially, the Nigerian army released a statement claiming to have rescued the girls, but has since retracted that claim. The Nigerian president has called for international support to rescue the abducted girls.

In light of the recent events, CHIME FOR CHANGE strategic partner Catapult is raising money to distribute to organizations working in Nigeria to support girls’ education.

You can help the cause by donating $10 now by texting BRINGBACK to 50555 or you can donate online to #ChimeIn and help bring back our girls. For more information, visit ChimeForChange.org

Last year, we did a big story on closet organization, and in the process, sold a handful of pieces on behalf of three charities. It was such a success that we decided to do it again, and enlisted some friends-of-goop who have particularly outstanding personal style to help—this year, 100 percent of the profits benefit DonorsChoose, a charity where public school teachers can directly ask for help fulfilling specific classroom needs. Beyoncé gave us a pair of heels from her latest tour:

"Excited to donate these custom-made Ankle Boots by Stuart Weitzman to benefit Goop’s charity closet sale. 100% of the profits go to Donors Choose."
