US singer Beyoncé’s charity organization BeyGOOD and NAACP, a civil rights organization, has announced a partnership to help the black community by providing grants worth $10,000 to Black-owned small businesses negatively impacted by the pandemic.
The BeyGOOD, established by the Crazy In Love singer during 2013, announced on its Instagram post saying, “BeyGOOD announces The Black-Owned Small Business Impact Fund, assisting small businesses negatively impacted by recent events.”
