Goodwill is thrilled to announce that Beyoncé is lending her voice to help Goodwill® transform lives for GOOD. As she kicked off her “The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour,” she announced she was joining Goodwill to help change lives by putting people back to work.

“Goodwill helps people get back to work by providing education, job training and placement,” Beyoncé said. “I wanted to team up with an organization that puts people first and works every day to help them improve and re-establish their lives.”

Beyoncé knows the power of hard work and encourages her fans to support Goodwill’s efforts by promoting donation drives during her North American concerts. Goodwill will host a mobile donation center onsite at 28 tour stops in 23 North American cities, collecting clothing, electronics and small household goods. The revenue from the sale of these donations will directly benefit Goodwill’s mission to provide training and career services for people with disadvantages, such as homelessness, and a lack of education or work experience, as well as those with physical, mental and emotional disabilities.

Michigan fans who want to join Beyoncé in supporting Goodwill can donate at her concert at The Palace of Auburn Hills in Detroit on July 20, or by simply donating to any of our Goodwill donation centers at anytime! When you donate to Goodwill — whether it is the contents of your whole closet, a pair of shoes or $10 — you’re helping someone in your community get back to work. You can also make a difference by giving a financial gift here.

Everyone deserves the chance to reach self-sustainability through the power of work. Let your friends on Facebook and Twitter know you support Beyoncé and Goodwill’s mission to transform lives through the power of work by using the hashtag #beygood.
