This year’s grandfather is named Beyonce
Music diva Beyonce will donate $ 500,000 to families affected by the pandemic crisis. The Grammy winner announced that people can apply for grants starting January 7th. Beneficiaries will be 100 people who will be selected at the end of the first month of next year.
This will be a form of compensation for those who have suffered spiritually and financially from the pandemic.
The money has been transferred from her account to that of the BeyGood foundation from where it will be distributed.
A statement from the singer's charity said: "Beyoncé is continuing to support me to help where she's most needed. The second phase of the BeyGOOD Fund will now help those affected by the housing crisis. ”
This is not Beyonce's first attempt to help people affected by the pandemic.
BeyGOOD has partnered with NAACP to support small businesses owned by people of color affected by the pandemic and has so far helped about 250 businesses with $ 10,000 grants.
In May, she set up Covid-19 test sites with her mother, Tina Knowles-Lawson, in their hometown of Houston, Texas. She also donated, in partnership with Jack Dorsey's Start Small Fund, $ 6 million to relieve the coronavirus in April.
