Wow, check out how Tidal is stepping up to the plate.

Jay Z‘s music streaming site says it’s donating $1.5 million to #BlackLivesMatter and other organizations. The funds were generated from its October’s Tidal X: 10/20 charity concert.

The announcement was made on Friday, the same day Trayvon Martin would have turned 21-years-old. The Trayvon Martin Foundation is also set to receive a portion of the donation, reports theRoot.

The other nonprofit groups that stand to benefit from Tidal’s largesse are Opportunity Agenda, Hands Up United and
