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.

The Houston native thanked everyone who donated on her Instagram: "Thanks to everyone who donated to BeyGOOD and contributed to helping so many families in Houston.

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.

Last night Beyonce attended the Wearable Art Gala in Los Angeles. The singer auctioned off an autographed gold-plated microphone from the Formation World Tour. She congratulated her mother on creating the event on Instagram:

"I am super proud of my beautiful mother for creating such an awesome event.

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.


Beyoncé Announces 3 New Flavors of WTRMLN WTR

March 9, 2017

Thirsty for more Beyoncé? You’re in luck.

WTRMLN WTR, the cold pressed watermelon juice that the singer invested in less than a year ago, is expanding with three new flavors: ginger lemon, lime and tart cherry. Like the classic juice, the new “BLNDS”—which will be available exclusively at Whole Foods through July for $3.99 per 12 oz. bottle—will use the entire watermelon, rind and all.

“Congratulations to my partners at WTRMLN WTR,” the expectant mom said of the company’s co-founders, Jody Levy and Harlan Berger. “I applaud the innovative female leaders at WTRMLN WTR, who inspire us with their creativity and their true commitment to elevating our community and culture.”

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.”

This is my girl Hannah!

I met Hannah when she was seven years old. Her unbelievable strength and positive energy instantly drew me in. Hannah has osteogenesis imperfecta, which is more commonly known as brittle bones. Although she faces many challenges every day, her spirit cannot be broken.

Now at 13, she is still a fighter, determined to enjoy life. She loves music, people, and dancing, and boy does she have moves!

She is a true inspiration!

On Saturday, Beyoncé and Jay-Z attended a rally for Trayvon Martin in NYC, meeting up with the shooting victim's parents and showing their support for the family. The couple kept a low profile at the event, which Al Sharpton addressed when he spoke, saying, "Jay-Z and Beyoncé said they didn't want to speak, and they didn't come for a photo op." He did reference the couple's stance, though, adding, "Jay-Z told me, 'I'm a father. Beyoncé is a mother.' We all feel the pain and apprehension — the laws must protect everybody, or it doesn't protect anybody."

During the rally, Beyoncé posted a picture of bracelets in support of Martin with the caption "#actnow4Trayvon" and later took to her website to share a photo of her and Jay-Z with Martin's family. Her appearance at the rally isn't the first time the star spoke out on Martin's behalf, though — on Saturday, hours after the verdict was announced, Beyoncé held a moment of silence for Martin at her concert in Nashville, following it up with the chorus from "I Will Always Love You."

August 28, 1955 - Emmett Till, 14, Money, Mississippi

We are still struggling with the issue of inequality and the lack of value for a black man’s life. Trayvon Martin’s most basic civil right, the right to live, was violated.

We have made so much progress and cannot allow hatred and racism to divide us. When we all join together, people of all races, we have the power to change the world we live in.

We must fight for Trayvon the same way the generation before us fought for Emmett Till.

Eddie Mair has spoken to Beyonce, Gucci Creative Director Frida Giannini and Salma Hayek about the Chime for Change concert that took place on Saturday night.

Beyonce said she was in 'disbelief' about some of the statistics and that she wanted to get people talking about it.

Salma Hayek told the Andrew Marr Show that she hoped that the Chime for Change movement would in future mean that there 'wasn't a single corner of the world where women didn't have access to human rights'.

The inaugural Sound of Change concert, organized by Gucci’s Chime for Change charity organization, is set to air on NBC on Sunday, June 2nd.

ABC reveals on Thursday, “Highlights from next month’s Sound of Change Live concert in London, promoting improved education, health and justice for women and girls around the world, will be televised by NBC as a two-hour special.”

Some of the most powerful touring artists in the world -- including Pearl Jam, Beyoncé, Bruce Springsteen, Kanye West, Jay-Z and many more -- will unite behind the Global Poverty Project (GPP) through the Global Citizen Tickets Initiative, a new program launched today which is designed to incentive social activism with concert tickets.

Bruno Mars, Tim McGraw, Usher, Ke$ha, Foo Fighters, Neil Young, Black Sabbath, Gotye, Dixie Chicks, One Direction and Tony Bennett are also among the dozens of acts participating.

Music fans can register at Globalcitizen.org/tickets today, where they can take a variety of social actions, ranging from signing petitions to calling their representatives, to earn points they can use to win free tickets to concerts (with a minimum of two tickets per show to be offered). The effort will engage thousands to take action and shine a spotlight on issues related to extreme poverty, including polio, malaria, women's empowerment, education, and more. Global Citizen is an innovative online platform and mobile application, and its simplicity makes such a broad program feasible.
"It's Possible" introduces the 3 pillars of Chime for Change (Education, Health, Justice) and conveys that through technology and by rallying voices together, women have opportunities and possibilities like never before. The video features Arianna Huffington, Blake Lively, Evan Rachel Wood, Freida Pinto, Halle Berry, Jada Pinkett Smith, John Legend, Katy Perry, Li Bing Bing, Olivia Wilde and Zoe Saldana, alongside CHIME co-founders Salma Hayek Pinault, Frida Giannini, and Beyoncé Knowles-Carter.

Goodwill Industries International is pleased to announce that Beyonce Knowles-Carter will lend her voice to help raise awareness about Goodwill's mission of transforming lives through the power of work. The announcement comes just as Beyonce gets ready to kick off The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour today in Serbia.

"Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement. I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives," said Beyonce.

Beyonce will encourage fans to support Goodwill by promoting donation drives at her North American concerts beginning on Friday, June 28, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Goodwill will host a mobile donation center onsite at 28 tour venues in 24 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods. The revenue from the sale of these donations will directly benefit local Goodwill agencies in their work to help people with disabilities and disadvantages, and anyone facing challenges to finding employment.

Beyonce will also help build awareness of Goodwill's mission through in-concert education, social media and online ticket auctions. Global charity auction site Charitybuzz.com will auction special ticket packages for The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour, with the revenue benefitting Goodwill. Read more...
