The Weeknd encouraged the public to give whatever they could, no matter how small the amount, after sharing that he’d donated $500K to BLM efforts.
As far as how the singer’s donations were divided up, Just Jared reports that $200K went to the Black Lives Matter Global Network, $200K to Colin Kaepernick‘s Know Your Rights campaign, and $100K was given to the National Bail Out. The Weeknd wasn’t the only Canadian to give on Monday (June 1) as Drake also donated $100K to the National Bail Out, as well.
