Philly was selected as one of six cities to be blessed by the Queen.
Beyoncé will be donating school supplies to about 2,000 Philadelphia schoolchildren as part of an initiative involving her charity, #BeyGOOD and a Brooklyn-based company committed to helping community children in need called STATE Bags.
With the ever-embattled state of Philly schools, we’ll take all the help we can get — even if, as my coworker pointed out, it may be just an underhanded attempt to use charity as a reason to promote Beyoncé’s new line of school supplies. Now your kindergartener’s pencil case can be as #FLAWLESS as #BEYONCÉ herself.
#BeyGOOD x STATE Bags has pledged to donate to underfunded school systems on the East coast. Other cities include Baltimore, Charlotte, N.C., Washington, D.C., Newark, N.J., and New York City.
