Celebrities have stepped up to the plate to assist those in need following the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and other parts of Texas.

 

Kevin Hart recently issued a social media “challenge” urging his famous friends to donate $25,000 to relief efforts and so far, many celebrities have answered the call.

Among those who have already donated $25,000 to the Red Cross include Nicki Minaj, T.I. and DJ Khaled. Chris Brown went above and beyond, donating $100,000, though not to the Red Cross because he’s “skeptical” about the organization. He instead said his donation will go “to the people.”

“Hey whats up big bro, Kevin Hart. I accept your challenge. We need to come together so. Im donating a $100,000. So man this is for everybody out there in Texas for the relief and everything.” Chris said in his IG post.

Additionally, Drake announced that he was giving funds toward relief efforts over the weekend. The rapper has ties to Houston, hosting an annual Houston Appreciation Weekend over the years, and said he was deeply affected by the devastation to a city he thinks of as home.

“I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years,” he wrote. “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.”
