Beyoncé’s #BeyGood Charity to Donate School Supplies to More Than 2,000 Students
If you didn’t already love Beyoncé, here’s another reason to do so.
The “Drunk In Love” singer is providing 2,000 lucky students with brand new school supplies through her charitable campaign #BeyGOOD.
Beyoncé has selected several underfunded school districts in six East Coast cities to donate school supplies for this coming fall season. The selected cities include Baltimore, Charlotte, N.C., Philadelphia, New York City, Washington D.C., and Newark.
Backpacks filled with pencils, notebooks, folders and more back-to-school items will be handed out during “pep rallies for good” at the chosen schools.
In addition, the Grammy winning artist has also collaborated with State Bags to produce a special edition backpack, which can be purchased online. Proceeds will benefit the 2014 Back to School Program, which helps at-risk children.
“Our #BeyGOODxSTATE GIVEBACKPACK Program and inspirational bag drop events go beyond a simple material donation by providing children in underfunded communities the role models and motivation to beat the odds,” Scot Tatelman, State Bags co-founder, explained in a statement.
He addded: “Partnering with Beyonce’s #BeyGOOD movement not only creates a platform for children to receive backpacks and school supplies for the upcoming year, but also drives them to reach their full potential.”
The singer is also advertising a “Back To School Bundle” on her website with goodies all inspired by her latest self-titled album.
