Celebrities are always in the spotlight for their crazy antics, but it’s great to know that they can also use their fame to do some good.
Over the past week, Houston native Megan Thee Stallion donated $25,000 to Bennett College in North Carolina. The donation was among many that were given out as a collaboration between Thee Stallion and the Fashion Nova clothing label.
“I am truly appreciative that Bennett College was not only selected but pre-selected to receive and participate in Fashion Nova’s new philanthropic initiative, ‘Women on Top.’ ” said Suzanne E. Walsh, president of Bennett College in a statement to Black Enterprise.
Keeping with the good deeds, Grammy Award-winning Canadian singer The Weeknd donated $1 million to Ethiopian relief efforts through the UN World Food Programme.

Barbadian beauty Rihanna also joined in to stand up for injustice this past week. The singer and “Fenty Beauty” creator was spotted in NYC at a “Stop Asian Hate” rally on Saturday. The singer posed for pictures and marched alongside those seeking justice for the recent abuse that the Asian community has received over the COVID pandemic.
We commend these artists for stepping up and making a difference, in not only their communities, but the world.
