Beyonce is Lending Her Voice for Goodwill

Beyonce is Lending Her Voice for GOOD – WCAX.COM Local Vermont News, Weather and Sports-.

If you haven’t heard the news – “Lady B” aka Beyonce Knowles-Carter aka “Blue Ivy’s mommy” is lending her voice to help raise awareness about Goodwill’s mission of transforming lives through the power of work.  “Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement. I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives,” said Beyonce.

Beyonce is encouraging fans to support Goodwill by promoting donation drives at her North American concerts beginning on Friday, June 28, at the Staples Center in LA. There will be a mobile donation centers onsite at 28 tour venues in 24 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods. The monies received from the the sales will benefit Goodwill agencies in their work to help people with disabilities and disadvantages, and anyone facing challenges to finding employment.

As you know, my sister before her untimely death was employed by Goodwill which is why I am such a big supporter of them.  I must admit that I am not a fan of Beyonce’s music but am definitely a fan of this endeavor.

What are your thoughts?
