Owing to the unprecedented storm, Hurricane Harvey that raged recently on the US, the celebrities are donating considerably and doing their part. Nicki Minaj, Beyonce, as well as other celebrities are making a difference by using their influence and wealth!
Houston strong! Kevin Hart, 38, confronted his superstar pals to show their integrity and donate $25,000 to Hurricane Harvey relief charitable organizations. And they’re responding to the call! Kevin’s sentimental plea through Instagram on August 28 has had an extreme reaction from the most of the folks he tagged, like Drake, Dwayne Johnson, T.I. as well as Nicki Minaj!
Many other celebs are joining his lead and contributing for the cause on their own will — along with Beyonce and Lady Gaga!
Beyonce, the 25 year old singer was born and brought up in Houston. It was essential for her to donate money and help her city to cope with the destructive hurricane and make it through the calamity. She told the Houston Chronicle, “My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help. I am working closely with my team at BeyGood as well as my pastor [Rudy Rasmus at St. John’s in downtown Houston] to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
Kevin has shared a video on Instagram requesting his celebrity friends to “help me help Houston as well as the other cities that are being affected by Hurricane Harvey….I will be able to track this money and make sure that it is being used properly. Keep your head up Houston & keep your faith. I love you all & my prayers are with you!!!! Click the link in my Bio….I will be calling out celebs daily. You also don’t have to be a celebrity to donate….Any and everybody can click the link and help out!!!!”
Among other celebrities, T.I. responded on Instagram: “They say Faith without works is DEAD!!!! We ALL need to WORK on coming together & utilizing our resources collectively to do some meaningful shit to people who need US more than ever!!! @kevinhart4real salute for responding with a challenge that WE ALL NEED TO ANSWER!!!! #Pray4Houston#USorELSE”. As of press time, Kevin along with his fans and friends have raised $205,232 via his Red Cross charity page. Astonishing! Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, as well as their Supernatural costars have raised a whopping $138,769, too! The Kardashian sisters along with their mother are donating an amount of $500,000 to the Red Cross and Salvation Army. Wow!
There isn’t any need to donate $25,000 to charity so as to help the Hurricane Harvey relief. You may donate any amount you wish to, to the charities like Unites Way or Red Cross. (check out Jenna Fischer‘s tweet her for how to text a $10 donation!).
