Former Destiny’s Child singer Beyoncé Knowles has made a huge personal donation to victims of Hurricane Ike.
The 27-year-old has pledged $100,000 to the Gulf Coast Ike Relief Fund, which was established at the request of Houston Mayor Bill White to help fill unmet human needs for victims of Hurricane Ike in the Greater Houston area.
The singer is also currently organizing a benefit concert through her Survivor Foundation to help raise money for those who have lost homes, property and jobs in Galveston, Brazoria, Chambers, Fort Bend, Harris and Montgomery counties.
Knowles specifically established her Foundation to assist people displaced or affected by disasters. The family-run family charity – which is also supported by Kelly Rowland – helps people in need, providing assistance to children and to those suffering from AIDS and homelessness.
Since it was established, the Survivor Foundation has raised over $2.5 million dollars in the Houston area alone.
