Hurricane Harvey has been causing severe damage in Texas since it made landfall late Friday. Houston, the fourth-largest city in the U.S., was one of the areas hardest hit by Harvey, and much of the city was flooded by torrential rain. Celebrities are now using their platforms to help in any way they can.
Houston native Beyoncé, who grew up in the Third Ward, released a statement to the Houston Chronicle that said: “My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave … I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor … to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
Country artist Chris Young has pledged to donate $100,000 to those affected. You can also donate to Chris’s GoFundMe here.
