In the latest Beyhive news, Queen B’s entertainment and management company, Parkwood Entertainment, has donated over $82,000 for the victims of the Flint Water Crisis.
Parkwood partnered with Beyoncé’s non-profit organization, BeyGOOD, and Beyoncé fans who agreed to have their “Formation” tour ticket sales go toward the philanthropic fund for Flint. A check for $82, 234 was presented to United Way of Genesee County on behalf of fans, BeyGOOD and Parkwood yesterday at a local high school in Detroit. According to Live Nation, the money will go toward “distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges, and truckloads of water” to the Flint residents affected by the water crisis.
Bey joins the likes of Diddy, Ryan Coogler, Ava DuVernay, Russell Simmons, Big Sean and the Game who have also raised awareness and funding for the Flint victims.
