Like we needed another reason to love Beyoncé!
She and the United Nations and humanitarian aid organizations are launching a global campaign that focuses on humanitarian work and will hopefully encourage people around the world to get involved by doing something good for others.
They're even making a music video for the day, which will be using Bey's I Was Here and will be filmed the UN General Assembly Hall in front of a live audience.
On August 19th, the video will drop globally.
The idea is to get people to unite and share acts of good, says the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs:
"I hope everyone will pledge to complete at least one humanitarian action - however great or small. Together we can create an unprecedented awareness of the plight of people affected by crises around the world."
Ideally, they want to reach 1 billion people in a day with a single message.
Here's what Beyoncé said:
"We all see the headlines and we think what can I really do to help? World Humanitarian Day is an opportunity for all of us to work together to make a difference. This is our time to leave our mark on the world and show that we were here and we care."
