Written by on February 19, 2021
Beyoncé and Solange are stepping up to help Texans impacted by the devastating winter storms.
The Houston natives have both pledged their support to aid relief efforts in their home state through various organizations.
Beyoncé’s BeyGOOD Foundation is teaming up with Adidas and Houston disaster relief organization Bread of Life to provide a one-time payment up to $1,000 to those living in Texas or any state affected by the storms who have experienced a “non-recurring, sudden or emergency-related financial hardship due to an unforeseen or unavoidable event.”

Due to the overwhelming response, the first round of applications has already closed. Applicants are now being reviewed for immediate assistance, according to the application form.
“We send our prayers to those impacted by the winter storm,” read a tweet from BeyGOOD.
Meanwhile, Solange is also giving back to her home state via Mutual Aid Houston, a BIPOC-led abolitionist collective boosting mutual aid efforts within Houston. According to a tweet from the organization, Solange has provided a “significant donation” to help post-freeze housing efforts.
“Sending so much love back home and im committed to doing more…my heart breaks man,” tweeted Solange. “Thank you for all the endless work u guys are doing on the ground.”
An unprecedented winter storm made its way across parts of the United States this week, causing death and destruction, while leaving millions without power and heat.
