The Weeknd Donates $250,000 to Black Lives Matter

  /  08.11.2016

The Weeknd’s giving spree continues.

After donating $50,000 to the University of Toronto, the Canadian crooner has given $250,000 to the Black Lives Matter movement, according to the New York Daily News.

Abel has shown solidarity with BLM in the past. In July, for instance, he tweeted: “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.”

The Weeknd isn’t the only musician working with Black Lives Matter. Earlier this year, Jay Z’s TIDAL also reportedly donated $1.5 million to the cause on what would have been Trayvon Martin’s 21st birthday.
