Beyoncé just raised more than $82,000 for Flint residents

Beyoncé announced Monday that she's delivered on the promise she made at February's Super Bowl to help out the victims of the lead-contaminated water crisis in Flint, Michigan by presenting a check for $82,234 to the United Way of Genesee County. Her fans helped raise the money by opting to donate to Beyoncé's Flint fund when they purchased a ticket to concerts on her Formation tour.

Beyoncé also gave 14 Detroit-area high school students "college gifts" to help fund their education, as well as tickets to her concert at Detroit's Ford Field on Tuesday night. Beyoncé previously announced that Tuesday's concert will "serve as a celebration of the resourcefulness of the people of Flint and Detroit, Michigan."

As though watching Queen Bey slay up on stage wasn't already gift enough.
