Beyoncé released a new single, performed at the Super Bowl, and announced a world tour all in one weekend! The singer has also announced that she will be using her upcoming Formation World Tour to give back to the water crisis in Flint, Michigan.

In a press release announcing the tour on Sunday night (Feb. 7), a rep for Beyoncé wrote:

“True to her life’s work of always giving back, fans will be given the opportunity to participate in Beyoncé’s #BeyGOOD initiative supporting local United Way programs and the continued work surrounding the water crisis in Flint, Michigan. United Way of Genesee County has been at the forefront of distributing thousands of filtration pitchers, faucet mount filters, replacement cartridges and truckloads of water to underserved populations to address immediate needs in Flint Michigan.
They are also partnering with the Community Foundation of Greater Flint to create a fund that will address long-term developmental, education, nutrition and health needs of the children affected by the Flint Water Crisis. Follow @beygood on Twitter for more information.”

Bey joins several other celebs who have donated to Flint so far, including Pearl Jam, Russell Simmons, Macklemore and others. We all know that this tour is going to be huge, so it’s great that she is using this to help the people in Flint.
