Queen B teamed up with the Goodwill International over in Europe for the 1st leg of the Mrs. Carter tour, ticket holders would bring in clothes, shoes etc. Goodwill will sell the items and use the money to help with employment programs as well as programs that cater to people with disabilities. In Europe, Goodwill collected over 27,000 pounds of items; now it’s America’s turn. Fans will be able to get in on helping these very same programs here in the United States. The first 100 ticket holders that brings items to donate to the cause will get an upgrade ticket to the Bey Stage or BeyHive VIP areas for the Mrs. Carter show, great way to give back.

But everyone is looking for the same thing: a better life. We’re proud that Beyonce is using her platform to share the positive impact Goodwill has on local communities, the environment and the lives of the millions of people Goodwill assists each year. We are incredibly grateful for Beyonce’s support of Goodwill’s mission.”
