My Inspiration - Beyonce Knowles - does something else inspiring: The Opening of the Beyonce Cosmetology Center in Brooklyn, NY - the Phoenix House, "a nonprofit recovery center for drug and alcohol addiction" - March 5, 2010.
The project, one that she and her mom have worked on for years, has come to fruition. This Center will provide a seven-month cosmetology training program for adult men and women.
Along with donating her salary from the "Etta James" role in "Cadillac Records" she has pledged to donate $100,000 annually to ensure the center's growth and continue to thrive.
Her reason for funding a beauty school “I felt like they needed something that was geared towards women — something that would teach them skills that would give them hope even after the Phoenix House” - Excellent.
Giving back is priceless.
