Beyoncé and her fans did some serious good for those dealing with the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. When purchasing tickets for Bey's Formation Tour, fans had the option to donate to water relief and many followed through. Beyoncé and her management company, Parkwood Entertainment, gave the large (in size and total) check to the United Way of Genesee County, according to a press release from the organization. The money was raised through the #BeyGOOD initiative which is giving aid to the United Way locals helping with the crisis in Flint. The money will go towards "filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges and truckloads of water," according to a press release from Live Nation.
