The #BeyGOOD initiative is joining forces with six local charities in Dublin, Cologne, Germany; Amsterdam, Holland; Antwerp, Belgium; Barcelona, Spain and Lisbon, Portugal - all of which are stops on Beyoncé's Mrs. Carter Show World Tour 2014.

The initiative aims to help provide support for homeless individuals, seriously ill children and citizens in need of job training and employment.

The Dublin Simon Community provides services to almost 3,000 people in Dublin, Kildare and Wicklow who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

Its services range from emergency accommodation and support, soup runs and rough sleeper teams who are often the first point of contact for people sleeping rough.

The charity also offers help with housing provision, settlement services, housing advice and information services helping people to make the move out of homelessness.

Beyoncé is set to perform four sold out dates at the O2 Dublin on 8, 9, 11 and 12 March.

Fans wanting to support the #BeyGOOD initiative are being encouraged to make a donation at tables set up at the venue.
