Beyonce is looking rather fresh faced without any makeup when she posed for a picture with her Goodwill partner.  Goodwill Industries International and Beyonce continue a partnership this holiday season for Beyonce’s second North American leg of The Mrs. Carter Show World Tour which includes 15 concert stops. With the exception of the November 30th date in Vancouver, Canada, the remaining fourteen stops will impact Goodwill headquarters in 13 communities, where Goodwill will encourage fans and concert attendees to #BeyGOOD this holiday season and support Goodwill’s job training and community-based services that reduce unemployment and help people care for themselves and their families. Goodwill collected 27,500 pounds (or 14 tons) of donated clothes and goods through its partnership with Beyonce this past summer, equating to more than 800 hours of free on-the-job training at Goodwill career centers.
