Houston floods: Sandra Bullock, Kevin Hart and more dig deep
Houston floods: Sandra Bullock, Kevin Hart and more dig deep: Sandra Bullock, Kevin Hart and other celebrities are lending their weight to the Tropical Storm Harvey relief effort in Texas. Bullock has donated $1m (£774,000) to the American Red Cross in the wake of the flooding in Houston and beyond.
Hart has called on his famous friends to dig deep, while his own fundraising campaign is near $1m.
Others to have pledged money include The Kardashians, Jennifer Lopez, Chris Brown and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
American Red Cross communications vice president Elizabeth Penniman said: “It’s times like this when we do receive such an incredible amount of support. Especially during times of disaster, people see what’s happening in Texas and our hearts all go out to them.
“Having someone like Sandra Bullock make this kind of commitment, it helps bring people together and open their hearts and be even more generous.”
The Ride Along and Get Hard star posted a video pledging $25,000 (£19,400) – which he later doubled – and named a string of other A-listers whom he said should follow his example.
He said: “I think we’ve participated in a lot of challenges on the internet, some meaningful, some meaningless, but we’ve all done it… At this point I’m going to start a real challenge. I’m challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead.”
Kim Kardashian West responded: “@kevinhart My mom, sisters & I accept your challenge. We will be donating $500,000 to @redcross and @salvationarmyus today #HoustonStrong”
