It seems only fitting that the worlds most famous pop star come to the rescue of millions of Texans in midst of one of the worst natural disasters in a decade. After all she hails from Houston.
Beyonce has teamed up with Adidas and Bread of Life, a Houston disaster relief organization to provide grants of up to $1,000 for those in need due to winter storm Uri.
BeyGood is reaching out to those in need via twitter and letting them know where they can go to get food and necessities as no sign of weather relief is in sight.
Freezing temperatures are expected to last into this week, and many Texas residents have been without electricity and heat for days, though power is beginning to come back on. There is also a shortage of food and water in the state, and 13 million residents have been advised to boil their water before drinking, if they even have water service. At least 38 people have died as a result of the storms across the country, the New York Times reported.
Our hearts go out to those affected. I am especially concerned for all the abandoned pets that I see on the news.
