By Kristin Mattern reports rapper Jay-Z and wife, pop star Beyonce, attended a rally for justice in the name of slain teen Trayvon Martin this past Saturday, July 20. The couple kept a low profile at the event held in the wake of the highly publicized trial, which brought up a heated debate about racial profiling. Martin’s killer, George Zimmerman, was acquitted of second-degree murder and manslaughter. Beyonce and Jay-Z said they weren’t at the event to speak or for a photo op. Beyonce wrote “#justicefortrayvon” on recent Instagram posts, as well as had a moment of silence and dedicated two songs to Martin at her July 13 concert. Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake dedicated their song, “Forever Young,” to the teen during their concert on July 19, during which Jay-Z yelled out, “This is for Trayvon, so light up you cell phones New York!”

What are some ways to support the same causes with your partner?

 Cupid’s Advice:

 Supporting a cause is always great, and when you support the same causes as the one you love, it not only brings you together as a couple, it brings together support for your community and beyond. Get out there and show your dearest you support them and their beliefs by working for a cause they are passionate about with these suggestions from Cupid:

1. Volunteer together: Spend time working to help raise funds for the cause of your sweetie’s choice. Together you can make a difference. Work at a local food pantry to help feed the homeless and less fortunate, or work the phones during a telethon. Get connected to charities that work for the cause the two of you are interested in helping, and volunteer your time to aid in the worthy endeavor.

2. Walk it out: Attend a walk for the charity that your cutie cares for. Be a part of an event that raises money and awareness for you and your honey’s cause. Get out there and get active as the two of you and dozens of others march along in the name of your cause.

3. “Like” it: While using social media to help out a cause might seem insignificant, for every “Like” and every “Share” an organization, charity, and cause gets, more people become aware of it. So get plugged in with your partner and aid in furthering your cause by utilizing social media to its fullest potential. Tweet about what is going on in relation to your cause, share posts about upcoming events, and like pages related to charities. The more people you get to care about your cause, the more good it does.
