    Beyoncé, along with Florence + the Machine, Haim, Ellie Goulding and more, will be holding a globally broadcasted benefit concert at London's Twickenham Stadium on June 1.

    What's the charity angle? Well, the concert will be on behalf of Chime for Change, founded by Gucci. Chime for Change supports equal opportunities for girls and women around the world by focusing on education, health, and social justice issues.

    Gucci will ensure that all ticket sales will go toward one of the numerous charities that the campaign works with.

    The day after the concert, ticket holders will be given a voucher that may be applied to any one of the charities. Other performers slated to perform include Iggy Azalea, John Legend, Laura Pausini, Rita Ora and Timbaland.

    Anyone plan to support this endeavor? Get more info at the Chime For Change website.
