Black Lives Matter! The Weeknd Donates $250,000 to Cause
The Weeknd has donated $250,000 to the Black Lives Matter Network!
The singer himself didn’t announce this, but two sources confirmed his gesture to the FADER.
The Toronto star has made his support of the Black Lives Matter movement known following Alton Sterling’s murder. He retweeted protest comments and expressed his own outrage.
Just a few days ago, the Weeknd donated $50,000 to the University Of Toronto in order to fund a new Ethiopic Studies program.
enough is enough. it's time to stand up for this. we can either sit and watch, or do something about it. the time is now. #blacklivesmatter
