The Carter’s Giving Back: Beyonce’ & Jay-Z Donate 15 Million to Haiti



It’s seems like the Knowles family is killing it in every lane from Beyonce’ over-the-top Formation World Tour, to Jay-Z’s Tidal success, and now philanthropy! The Knowles’ recently donated 15 million dollars to Haiti after Hurricane Matthew. It’s safe to say that most of the Jay & B’s moves are made in silence, but I think this is one that deserved some noise!

Haiti, a country with geographic disadvantages that makes them susceptible to natural disasters, just suffered from thousands of lives lost and land damaged due to Hurricane Matthew. Instead of just talking about it, the Knowles’ put the money where their mouth is. In addition to Haiti, the Knowles’ recently financially supported movements such as Black Lives Matter in the fight for freedom, justice, and equality in the U.S.

The Knowles’ family is setting a great example for many stars within the Hip-Hop community, as we become some of the lead activist in the country and fight on the forefront with our words, messages, and now dollars.

Jay Z & Beyonce’ Make BIG Statements this Black History Month; $1.5 Million Donation & More!


Jay Z and Beyonce’ have had a week full of politically charged statements, charitable donations, and public backlash.

Jay Z, however, has been making quite a few moves behind the scenes dating all the way back to Tidal’s first concert in October 2015.

Rihanna Gives Back to Hurricane Sandy Victims

Rihanna may have a bad girl persona, but she’s doing good for the victims of Hurricane Sandy.

According to the Grio, the singer hosted a listening party turned benefit concert last night titled, “Rihanna & Friends” at Jay-Z’s 40/40 club in New York City. The event was scheduled to be free, but the decision to charge admission to help those affected by the disaster transformed it into a charitable event. “Now is the time for us to come together and do whatever we can to aid those in need,” she told the Daily News.

The pop star is certainly doing her part. She has already donated 1,000 sleeping bags and is also donating $100,000 the NYC Food Bank.

“It’s really difficult to see something so tragic going on and not be able to do anything about it,” Rihanna expressed in a recent interview. “There’s nothing you can control, it’s Mother Nature. It’s really sad what happened here.”
