Beyoncè And Kelly Rowland Create The Survivors Foundation

Back in the mid to late 2000s, Beyoncè and Destiney’s Child groupmate Kelly Rowland teamed up to establish the Survivors Foundation to help people recover after natural disasters, particularly those who suffered the impacts of Hurricane Katrina.

Although information about the foundation on the internet is a bit scarce these days, Seventeen reported that Survivors raised millions of dollars for struggling families and partnered with Show Your Helping Hand and Feeding America to get food to local food banks.

“Reaching out and touching lives is incredibly empowering,” Beyoncè said back in 2009. “That’s why I want my fans to experience the joy of making a difference by helping someone else.”
