weekendPhilanthropy is not limited to North America … he is opening up his portfolio to help people who were injured, people whose loved ones died and people who were left homeless by the tragic explosion that shook Beirut.
Singer manager, Wassim “Sal” Slaiby, and his wife, Rima Fakih, have been leading the charge of receiving aid to people in Lebanon affected by last week’s devastating blast. Now the weekend is donating $ 300k to Global Aid for Lebanon.
We have been told that the money will be distributed to the World Food Program, the Lebanese Red Cross and the country’s Children’s Center.
Slaiby, who is Lebanese-Canadian, says … “I am so honored and humbled to work with artists who have such a deep concern for the world and now for our Lebanese brothers and sisters who are in pain and they need our collective help. “
He thanked Weekend for his generosity and is encouraging others to give what they can.
As you may know … One of the Weekend is one of the many celebs that has been extremely charitable over the last 6 months. He has pledged $ 500k to social justice and also donated $ 1 million in COVID-19 relief and $ 350K to the Tik Tok Equal Justice Initiative.
It is clear that he has more to give … and the people of Beirut certainly need him.
