Beyonce Knowles has earned two distinguished distinctions in 2016. First, she became a runner-up for TIME magazine’s Person of the Year title. And only last week, DoSomething.org named her as the most charitable celebrity of 2016 in their annual Celebs Gone Good list.
The pop star truly earned both the titles. Causes she endorsed include Black Lives Matter, the water crisis in Flint, Michigan, and gender equality. She has also supported mothers of gun violence victims in various ways. Beyonce also organized two concerts for charity in the past year. She has even done a lot of charitable work discreetly which came to light much later.
In the past, too, she has supported a number of causes. Organizations she supports include Oxfam, The Lunchbox Fund, Women’s Fund for Scotland, Feeding America and several more. She is also a proponent of women empowerment through her foundation Chime for Change.
In 2005, Beyonce was one of the ambassadors of World Children’s Day that falls on November 20. The same year she released “Stand Up For Love” as the anthem for the event to raise awareness and funds for children’s causes.
Beyonce is one of the celebrities who use their popularity to promote good values among the young people. In fact, she has launched several social media campaigns with this aim. One of them was #BeyGood that encourages kids in difficult situations to improve their lives.
She often uses her social media pages to encourage her fans to be charitable. Talking about it, she once said, “Reaching out and touching lives is incredibly empowering. That’s why I want my fans to experience the joy of making a difference by helping someone else.”
Inspiring much? Well, Beyonce may be a big star with the capacity to donate and organize big bucks for charity. You don’t have to have those to be charitable. You can start with whatever you can afford at Crowdera. Browse through our campaigns and look for the cause that you support.
