Beyoncé's 'Renaissance' tour stopped off at the FedEx Field in Maryland, just outside of Washington, D.C., on August 6. Unfortunately, dangerously stormy weather arrived just as the Beyhive was gathering for the monumental show. The concert faced significant delays while fans were ordered to shelter in place due to the extreme weather conditions. With the show kicking off late, it meant that public transport would have shut down for the night by the time it ended. However, Beyoncé isn't one to leave her fans out in the cold. The 'Alien Superstar' singer paid DC Metro a whopping US$100,000 to extend their service for an extra hour so that concertgoers could still get home. Fans expressed their gratitude to their favorite star on Twitter for coming to their rescue and allowing everyone to enjoy the show without worries about getting home safely.
While we often hear about extravagant celebrity purchases, from luxury cars to handbags that could pay off student loans, many stars have also decided to give back to the society that lifts them up. Beyond their mere influence or social media posts, many kindhearted celebrities have put their money where their mouth is and donated impressive sums of money to those who aren’t so fortunate. Of course, their fame and influence are also huge boosts in raising awareness for the causes that matter.
In this gallery, discover some of the most admirable and generous stars around.
