Proving once again that she has an incredibly big heart, Beyoncé Knowles donated $125,000 to help save the lives of premature babies in developing countries.

The “Drunk in Love” singer chose to help out the Embrace Innovations charity, which distributes ingenious infant warmers to babies born in poverty. The baby warmer is a lower cost alternative to a traditional incubator and looks like a tiny sleeping bag.

With Beyonce’s donation, the company will now fund pilot testing of the device in countries like Ethiopia, Ghana, Kenya, Malawi, Mali, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Tanzania and Uganda. Her aid will assist an estimated 2,000 babies!

Beyonce, mother herself to Blue Ivy, 2, announced her donation at an anniversary party for Gucci’s Chime for Change charity, which raises awareness for education and health for young girls in other developing nations.
