Beyonce and Megan Thee Stallion‘s new track is providing more than listening pleasure — it’s immediately feeding people in need by inspiring others to give.
As we told you … the 2 women are donating proceeds from Bey’s remix of Meg’s “Savage” to Bread of Life in Houston, a nonprofit that supplies food for families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
The charity tells us the song’s release is already paying dividends though — it received donations from 500 new donors in the first 24 hours after the song’s Wednesday debut!
We’re told the money continues to come from the ‘Savage’ attention — most donors give anywhere from $5 to $50 — and it’s all being used to stock up for the increased demand for food with so many millions out of work.
Bread of Life sets up a drive-thru pick up spot for families to get boxes of groceries loaded right into their trunk. The org makes sure to take coronavirus precautions too … there’s no physical contact between the families and the staff, and masks and gloves are required.
As for how Bread of Life was chosen by Beyonce and Megan Thee Stallion — other than the Houston connection — we’re told Bey and her mom, Tina Knowles, have worked with the nonprofit in the past.
We’re told the mother-daughter duo helped build an apartment complex for some folks in need who Bread of Life supports. Plus, Beyonce and the org’s founder grew up in the same church.
That’s a good connection, and it’s all come together for a very good cause.
