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.
