Another tropical storm named Harvey has hit the U.S., this time in Houston, Texas. The torrential downpour and floods has displaced hundreds of people, leaving them with little to no food, supplies, or shelter.
Many celebrities have come together in this time of need to help those most effected in Texas, donating thousands of dollars and using their platform to bring attention to the disaster.
Kevin Hart was one of the first people to publicly call on other celebs to start a new online challenge, #TheHurricaneHarveyReliefChallenge, and donate whatever they could to help Houston.
After that initial call to action, many other celebrities like Drake, The Rock, T.I. and DJ Khaled, put up videos and messages pledging to donate money and asking for other celebs to do the same.
We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
