Dwayne Johnson donates thousands to aid Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts

People who cannot donate blood can still help hurricane victims in need by donating money to Carter BloodCare. “People should remember Houston and other parts of Texas later in the year”.

Meanwhile, rapper Drake, who is now in London, has also revealed he is working out ways to help in the recovery process.

Drake wrote on Instagram early Monday that he and his manager were working with local relief groups to help Texas affected by the hurricane. At the the end of the video, he nominated Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Steve Harvey, Chris Rock, Dave Chapelle, JAY-Z and BeyoncĂ©, Justin Timberlake and Jerry Seinfeld to step up and take charge as well. “So man this is for everybody out there in Texas for the relief and everything”. They have the infrastructure, expertise and people with experience.

Chris Young: The country singer started a GoFundMe campaign to help raise money for Texans in need, pledging to donate $100,000 of his own money.

Katy Perry, who boasts Twitter’s largest following at more than 103 million, urged viewers to donate while she hosted MTV’s Video Music Awards on Sunday night, and she tweeted a link to the Red Cross’ donation efforts. That said, relief agencies will need money beyond first few days or even weeks, so if the ease of text donations appeals to you, tap away. She also confirmed that The Ellen Show would donate $25,000 to the Red Cross.
