The Weeknd reached into his own pocket to give back. On Wednesday, The Weeknd donated $300,000 of his own money to Global Aid for Lebanon. The money will go to help those affected by that horrific explosion in Beirut that happened earlier this month.
The Weeknd’s manager, Wassim “Sal” Slaiby and his wife Rima Fakih, were both born in Lebanon. They also donated $250,000 to the aid fund this week as well.
