Here’s How Beyonce Just Helped Flint Residents
Looks like Beyonce can get her fans to do more than get in formation and buy concert tickets. Monday, the singer’s BeyGood Foundation announced it has raised more than $80,000 for the residents of Flint, Michigan.

Apparently, fans were given the option to add a donation on to the cost of their Formation World Tour tickets. The result? The BeyHive was able to raise $82,234 for the United Way of Genesee County–money that will help residents of Flint deal with the ongoing water crisis.
That wasn’t the only surprise Queen Bey bestowed on fans on her recent tour stop through Detroit. A group of lucky Motown high school students were also given passes to the show!

Beyonce’s BeyGood Foundation hopes to inspire her legion of fans to give back to their communities by volunteering their time and donating money to worthy causes. And from the looks of the check Bey just cut to the folks of Flint, it’s working.
