Beyoncé and JAY-Z are offering fans free tickets to their joint On The Run II Tour, but there's a catch. According to Ivy McGregor, who's the director of philanthropy and corporate relations for Beyoncé's Parkwood Entertainment management company, fans must give back to charity.
The two music superstars are partnering with two nonprofits for this new initiative. The first is The Prince's Trust, which is a youth-focused charity organization that was founded by the Prince of Wales. The second charity is Global Citizen, an anti-poverty advocacy organization that Beyoncé has partnered with before. Both organizations will raffle tickets for select European tour dates to fans who either sign up to volunteer or donate money.
“The united efforts of BeyGOOD/DoGood, along with our amazing partners The Prince’s Trust and Global Citizen, are calling upon you to lift your voices, lend your hands and share your creativity as active and positive forces for doing good,” McGregor said in a press statement.
Both Beyoncé and JAY-Z are known to often give back. Queen Bey has previously given to a number of initiatives. The most recent one was done after her Coachella performance where Bey donated $100,000 to select Historically Black Colleges and Universities (HBCUs). Hov has donated to many causes over the years including supplying select communities in Africa with clean water, Puerto Rico hurricane relief and more.
