Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD Unveils $6 Million COVID-19 Relief Initiative

Beyoncé, through her charitable initiative BeyGOOD, has unveiled a multi-million dollar COVID-19 relief effort.

The Grammy winner’s initiative has partnered with Twitter’s CEO Jack Dorsey’s Start Small to donate $6 million to COVID-19 relief.

The donation will go towards providing basic necessities and mental health services to hard-hit communities of color.

“Communities of color are suffering by epic proportions due to the COVID-19 pandemic,” BeyGOOD wrote in a statement. “Communities that were already lacking funds for education, health and housing are now faced with alarming infection rates and fatalities. […] Void of basic necessities, mental burdens are also accelerated.”

BeyGOOD and Start Small will provide donations to local community-based organizations, UCLA and the National Alliance in Mental Illness for relief efforts in Houston, Beyoncé’s hometown; New York; New Orleans; and Detroit.
