As the tropical storm dubbed Harvey continues to devastate residents of Houston, Texas, Kevin Hart has launched the Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge Monday to support relief efforts in the area. He donated $25,000 and asked Beyoncé, Dave Chappelle, Jay-Z, Dwayne Johnson, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld and Justin Timberlake to match his donation. Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.
The Kardashian family announced on Tuesday that they would be donating 500k to relief efforts. Khloe Kardashian, Kim Kardashian and Kris Jenner confirmed the claims on their social media sites. Kris encouraged her followers to visit redcross.org to make a donation of their own.
Jennifer Lopez and Alex Rodriguez pledged $25,000 each Tuesday. The pop star also asked her followers to donate “whatever you can afford. Do as much as you can. We’re gonna do as much as we can through this whole process.”
In 18 hours, Hart’s CrowdRise page has received $291,274 in donations from 2,154 people.
