Local volunteers from the Red Cross are making their way down to Texas Saturday to help residents deal with the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey

I'm challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead and donating $25,000 to Hurricane Harvey to the Red Cross.

He tagged his famous friends including Beyonce, Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson, Chris Rock, Steve Harvey, Justin Timberlake, Dave Chappelle, Jay Z, and Jerry Seinfeld to help him raise funds. I think people are in bad shape and they need help. "At this point I'm going to start a real challenge".

The deluge of support continued with country star Chris Young.

Hart isn't the only celebrity to come forward and donate thousands to help those affected by the powerful storm. 'I've just been caught up to speed with everything that's going on in Houston with Hurricane Harvey and this shit is unbelievable.

Ramos had temporarily softened the state's voter ID rules for the 2016 elections, and the new law somewhat followed her lead. Because those potential voters are more likely to be black or Latino, the law was discriminatory, she said.

Houston Texans player J.J. Watt also initiated a fundraiser, which has now raised more than $522,000, while Lin-Manuel Miranda encouraged people to donate to Baker-Ripley, a Texas charity aimed at building and rebuilding neighborhoods across the country.

As we all know, Hurricane Harvey has devastated parts of Texas and Louisiana.

Toronto native Drake, who has lived in Houston for the last eight years, said that he and DJ Future the Prince 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've been a person who's partaken in every one of them'.

Perry urged viewers to donate while hosting MTV's Video Music Awards on Sunday night and tweeted a link to the Red Cross' donation efforts to more than 100 million followers on Twitter. By Monday morning, up to 40 inches of rain had fallen on northeast Houston. "Harvey is still a risky and historic storm".
