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.

Once again Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) - a charity that claims to protect animals, is pushing for Staffordshire Bull Terriers - a loyal, loving family dog, to be eradicated.

In 2018, during a government consultation of the Dangerous Dog Act 1991, the charity called for Staffies to be added to it claiming, at the time, that it was, 'best for the dog.' If they had been, it would have made it illegal to own the breed in the UK.

The challenges of summertime parenting - from brain freeze to sandy cars

The best time of year to be a parent, just don't forget sunscreen

I love the sun more now than I ever did because parenting gets a bit easier in nice weather. But of course, the lighter nights and sunshine bring their own challenges too.

My four-year-old says the only thing he doesn't like about summer is brain freeze, which indicates how many ice lollies are consumed in this house. I made my own last summer from sugar-free cordial and may have to do the same again this year because they requested ice lollies for breakfast and haven't stopped asking.
