Beyoncé has officially launched her previously announced effort to support her Houston hometown in the wake of Hurricane Harvey.

Early Friday, the singer hit Instagram with the message: “BEYGOOD HOUSTON.”

 

 

Without any further explanation or caption, a Google search eventually turned up a donation page for BEYGOOD HOUSTON on her website Beyonce.com.

The page reads:

Join us as the BeyGOOD team heads to Houston to continue our relief efforts on the ground. We have teamed up with Bread of Life and Greater Houston Community Foundation, who have been working with the displaced from the start of Hurricane Harvey’s landfall.

JOIN US & BEYGOOD

Your donations will help in long-term revitalization and aid in purchasing immediate needs including: cots, blankets & pillows, baby products, feminine products, wheelchairs and more.

The page allows users to donate to either “Bread of Life,” or “Greater Houston Community Foundation [GHCF] directly.

Solange is joining in relief efforts as well.

She’ll be joined by the Sun Ra Arkestra on September 28 at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre for a performance called “Orion’s Rise.”

“I’m committed to partnering with organizations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love,” she wrote in a statement via Instagram.

Solange is also due to perform select dates in October with Earl Sweatshirt, Flying Lotus, the Sun Ra Arkestra, and Chassol. Her “Seventy States” digital piece is showing now at London’s Tate Modern, and her site-specific performance art piece “Scales” debuts October 8 in Marfa, Texas.

    Yeah, this is not the time for the hate. Thousands of people are showing love to Houston and surrounding areas, just be thankful that God put it on the hearts and minds of folks from all walks of life lending a hand, money, service, time, and whatever they have to give. Be blessed and be a blessing. Thanks to everyone who helps.

  2. People think. Rise up! on said:

    Beyoncé is from Houston, and let’s face it, Houston needs as much help as any of us can give. Hating on people who did something with their lives in a positive way should always give back, no matter what walk of life you come from. I was taught that when someone wants to help you, in any kind of way, you say Thank You. I’m not from Houston, or Texas for that matter, but I thank Beyoncé, and anyone like her for helping people in need. Charity always begins at home.

  3. Yeah right. Beyonce never even probably thought of helping Houston till Kevin Hart started the campaign. Then she jumps on the wagon trying to make it all about herself as usual. Houston doesn’t need her drama and has enough celebrities without her in the way
    She is so sickening for attention.

    • How do you know? You made a previous comment about her not donating any money as though you got a Bible in your mouth and all you speak is the Gospel, and you know with 100% certainity what she did or did not do.. You don’t know!!!!! Sheesh! And, side-note: I’m not even a “Bey” fan. I wouldn’t go see her if she was giving a free concert in my backyard.
