This past Mother’s Day weekend, Queen Bey and her mom, Tina Lawson provided hundreds of test kits to people in their hometown.
Together, Beyonce and Tina have created the initiative #IDIDMYPART, which offers hundreds of test kits to their hometown of Houston, Texas. Beyonce took to her Instagram to show a picture from one of the test sites, thanking them for getting tested.
“Seeing my hometown do their part and get tested today brought me so much joy. H-Town, I love yall,” Beyonce wrote next to a picture taken at one of the local middle schools showing a line of cars with people waiting to be tested.
In a prepared statement, Congresswoman Shelia Jackson-Lee stated, “Texas has a very low COVID-19 test rate, second lowest in the nation. This is why the commitment by Ms. Tina Knowles Lawson and BeyGOOD is so significant in helping Houstonians get out and get tested”.
Beyonce has already donated $6M to help fight the spread of the virus, giving funding to charities providing food, water, cleaning supplies, medicines, face masks, and personal hygiene items. Mrs. Carter is also bringing awareness to mental health as a result of quarantining.
Tina Knowles said she challenged several celebrities who plan to continue the #IDIDMYPART movement: Tyler Perry in Atlanta, Magic Johnson in Detroit, and Octavia Spencer in Mississippi.
