Beyoncé donates $125,000 to charity to help babies

Thursday June 12, 2014

Beyoncé donated $125,000 to organisation Embrace Innovations, Jane Chen’s organisation which designs infant warmers, a low-cost alternative to incubators.

The Crazy in Love singer announced her donation at the Gucci’s Chime for Change anniversary party, which she attended with her sister Solange, as well as other guests including Gossip Girl star Blake Lively. It was the siblings’ first appearance together on a red carpet since video footage was leaked of an incident between Solange and Jay Z at the Met Gala.

The proceeds from Beyoncé’s generous donation will go towards helping to fund pilot testing of the infant warmers across a host of countries including Ethiopia and Ghana, which could help 1,900 babies to survive.
