Ear Hustle 411 came across this story where Beyonce built a housing complex for the homeless in Houston Texas last year. Now the purpose of sharing this story is we often hear that celebrities don’t give back yet many in the media never shared this story.
We have to celebrate the good in people and not just the negative gossip that the media and bloggers tend to share for views.
Check out what Rolling Out originally reported last July 2014.
Beyoncé is certainly feeling philanthropic this year! After donating half a million to Chime for Change, a global campaign that was created to help strengthen and unite the voices of young women around the world by inspiring them with “powerful stories” about inspiring women, back in June, news surfaced that Mrs. Carter didn’t stop there!
Recently, the Houston native dropped $7 million to build a low-income housing project in her hometown for homeless men and women and children. She was even dubbed a saint by her Pastor, Rev. Rudy Rasmus for her involvement with the church.
“She’s an incredible human being. Has an incredible heart and has been extremely helpful in our mission and our ministry here,” Rasmus said in a recent interview with KHOU.
“She has a global platform and is doing some amazing work and I’m glad she’s a friend of mine,” he continued.
