Beyoncé Knowles Donates Millions To Drug Treatment Center

As many already know, Beyoncé Knowles will be staring as Etta James in Cadillac Records — the new film version of the legendary singer’s life. What people don’t know is that Sasha Fierce (aka Beyonce) donated her entire $4 million salary from the film to the Phoenix House – the drug treatment center she spent weeks in prepping for the role.

“Her incredibly generous gesture to Phoenix House comes as no big surprise to those close to her,“ a source told Britain’s The Daily Star. “Without fanfare or publicity of any kind she has quietly given away millions to causes that move her. I don’t think she’s ever before given away such a large amount to one organization but she clearly believes that many people, possibly thousands, would die without their help. We’re talking about people here who can’t afford $20,000-plus a week to check themselves into Promises in Malibu or the Betty Ford Clinic. These people are hand-to-mouth street junkies and without groups like Phoenix they wouldn’t stand a chance of recovery. Beyoncé has acted, like she always does, from the heart and if she’s helped save even one life over Christmas she’ll consider every last cent well spent.”

Phoenix House runs 98 residential and outpatient rehab programs throughout the US, and treats over 5000 addicts a day.

While we had some beef with Knowles before for sporting fur, one can’t help but be moved by this generous donation. Good work, B!
