This megastar is not just wowing fans with her hit tracks but multiple good deeds as well.
Megan has no doubt earned repute for many charitable works and now, she’s topping it once more.
On Tuesday, the 26 year old on social media got informed about a fan named Shaniah who had died last week and her family was struggling to cover the funeral costs. Whereas a GoFundMe campaign was created with a target of $16,000, the target had not yet been reached.
“Meg we lost a hottie ? our best friend passed away unexpectedly,”@Selenachichis wrote on Twitter. “They absolutely loved you, listening to ur songs was something we did every time we were together. We’re helping their family w funeral costs. We started a gofundme & are halfway there. @theestallion.”
Megan asked how much is needed for the funeral and it was revealed $8,000 was needed. Many thanks to Megan’s generous $8,155 donation, it was surpassed having garnered a total of $16,130 in contributions as of press time.
“This has been incredibly overwhelming and we are so thankful to Meg,” @Selenachichis told Complex. “Shaniah, one of my best friends passed away unexpectedly last week. Shocked and confused myself and two of Shaniah’s other best friends came together to help Shaniah’s family with the funeral. A gofundme was created almost immediately for the funeral but the cost for everything continued to increase. Between the cemetery and funeral home it was going to cost 16k and we had only reached around 7600 and had exhausted all our resources.
“Shaniah and I always listened to Meg together and talked about her. We are such huge fans and I thought I would take a leap and see if we could reach her and just have her rt the gofundme link to reach more people for any possible help with donations. We all came together and asked everyone to tag Meg in hopes of reaching her and somehow it worked.”
Recall in 2019 the WAP rapper made massive headlines for giving $1,200 to help pay for the funeral of a fan she had met at her Washington D.C. show with Wale. Megan Thee Stallion also partnered with apparel retail company Fashion Nova to donate $100,000 to the Breonna Taylor Foundation on the first anniversary of her death.
Days ago, it was revealed Megan is launching a full-ride scholarship with Roc Nation, at Long Island University in New York.
