Beyoncé and Solange, attended Chime for
Change 1 year anniversary party at Gucci’s Fifth Avenue store in New York; an organization co-founded by Salma Hayek.
Both were rocking Gucci ensembles and accessorized with gold clutches. I’m glad Beyoncé took the braids out and got back to her familiar gold locks. On the other hand, Solange and that natural inspired wavy fro was slayed to the gawds!
Solange rocked a special DJ set for the event.
Beyoncé donated $500,00 to the cause according to the statement released by Gucci:
Beyoncé committed to donate $500,000 to fund Chime For Change projects for girls and women in the areas of Education, Health and Justice as follows:
EDUCATION: $125,000 to support 100 school girls at Shining Hope for Communities (SHOFCO) schools in Kenya for one year.
· HEALTH: $125,000 to provide 320 Embrace infant warmers to 100 rural health facilities in 11 Millennium Village sites across 10 countries in sub-Saharan Africa (Mali, Kenya, Uganda, Nigeria, Senegal, Ghana, Tanzania, Rwanda, Malawi, and Ethiopia). The Embrace infant warmers will help more than 1,900 at-risk newborns survive and thrive.
· JUSTICE: $125,000 to provide 600 Sisters in Strength Youth Leaders and Alumni in New York City with the critical educational and mentoring support, job training, counseling services, and resources they need to successfully navigate and graduate from high school and college through Girls for Gender Equity.
· JUSTICE: $125,000 to provide 25 human trafficking survivors in Los Angeles with counseling, medical care, legal services, and individual recovery treatment to rebuild their lives through the Coalition to Abolish Slavery & Trafficking (CAST).
It’s great to see celebrities giving back because they all start from somewhere. And it’s even better to see the sisters together sans the elevator set. Yet and still, the real MVP of the show is Solange’s extensions!
