Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s “Savage” remix has people in the mood to dance…and donate.
The proceeds from the song are going to Houston’s ‘Bread of Life’ nonprofit supplying food to families affected by the COVID-19 pandemic — and others are donating now too.
The charity tells us the song’s release is already paying dividends though — it received donations from 500 new donors in the first 24 hours after the song’s Wednesday debut!
We’re told the money continues to come from the ‘Savage’ attention — most donors give anywhere from $5 to $50 — and it’s all being used to stock up for the increased demand for food with so many millions out of work.
Bread of Life sets up a drive-thru pick up spot for families to get boxes of groceries loaded right into their trunk. The org makes sure to take coronavirus precautions too … there’s no physical contact between the families and the staff, and masks and gloves are required.
As for how Bread of Life was chosen by Beyonce and Megan Thee Stallion — other than the Houston connection — we’re told Bey and her mom, Tina Knowles, have worked with the nonprofit in the past.
We’re told the mother-daughter duo helped build an apartment complex for some folks in need who Bread of Life supports. Plus, Beyonce and the org’s founder grew up in the same church.
That’s a good connection, and it’s all come together for a very good cause.
