Gucci Donates $1 Million to Beyonce's BeyGood4Burundi Campaign
Beyoncé received a very special gift from her friends at Gucci on Thursday (Mar. 22).
The luxury designer brand donated $1 million to Queen Bey’s BeyGood4Burundi initiative, launched in the summer of 2017. The organization works with Unicef to establish better hygiene and sanitation in Burundi, Africa. According to the initiative’s website, “Burundi is one of the most densely populated countries in Africa with nearly half of the population lacking access to clean, safe drinking water.”
The contribution was made through the brand’s Chime For Change campaign, which advocates for gender equality. While 35 wells have already been built in the area, the donation will allow for 80 more wells—which will allow BeyGood4Burndi to reach their goal of helping 366,000 women and children by the year 2020.
