Beyoncé is giving back to her home state of Texas following the winter storm.

Millions of Texans didn't have heat and electricity and faced the harsh winter storm, Uri. Despite the power restored in homes, there's another conflict—a water crisis. The water isn't the cleanest to drink and cook with because the cold temperatures busted the water pipes.


As a result, Beyoncé took matters into her own hands. Her foundation BeyGOOD and Adidas are working with Bread of Life Inc., a nonprofit based in Houston, Texas, to help those devastated during the storm via an application. They were giving up to $1,000.

With the overwhelming amount of applications received, they've decided to close the process during this time. Bread of Life Inc. is accepting donations.

On Saturday, BeyGOOD, alongside Houston hip hop artist and founder of Angel By Nature, Trae tha Truth, are partnering up to help the community. They are set to distribute 1,000 meals.

Angel By Nature is an organization that helps those who've faced hard times or impoverishment, especially the youth.

It's always a delight to see people who have influence use their platforms to give back to those in need.

Research shows women are actually more likely than men to actively choose to start their own business – often motivated by the desire to be their own boss or to have a better work-life balance and spend more time with their family.

How am I doing as a parent?

Evaluating yourself is hard. It's even harder when attempting to assess your parenting because there's no set guide and nothing to count, measure, or quantify.

How am I doing as a parent?

Some time ago, I met my lovely friend for a drink, straight off the train from London. She told me about a very intense performance review she had at work recently, which, although scary, was incredibly useful; it gave her a general sense of how she was doing and areas to work on.

And it struck me we don't get this feedback as parents. Am I doing a good job? I have no idea.
