Not only does Justin Bieber’s music capture our hearts, but so do his charitable acts. This weekend, for instance, Justin Bieber made a big donation to Hurricane Harvey relief. Bieber posted about it on Instagram, and said he’s doing the Kevin Hart challenge for celebrities to donate to the cause after all the catastrophic flooding.
“Just looking at these photos from Hurricane Harvey, I just want to say that I am so sorry to all the families that have lost their homes, people that have lost their lives,” Bieber said in the IG video. “I’m going to accept the Kevin Hart challenge and donate $25,000 towards the Red Cross, and I love you guys in Houston. You guys are awesome, you guys are strong. I am so sorry this is happening.”
We couldn’t have said that better ourselves, and you can see Bieber’s Insta post below.
Other celebrities are helping out and donating, too, including Zendaya, Beyoncé, and Drake.
And as Bieber said, he’s following Hart’s lead.
“At this point, this is a serious matter,” Hart said in an Instagram video. “I think the people are in bad shape and they need help. I’m going to lead the charge and step up in this way.”
According to the L.A. Times, Hart’s been getting a lot of celebs involved, including Dwayne Johnson, Steve Harvey, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, and more. The deal is, the person donates, then tags another person to do the same. A win-win for everybody, particularly those in Texas.
Selena Gomez, Nick Jonas, and Demi Lavato have also donated, as well as encouraging others to do the same.
I'm kicking this off with a $50k donation at https://t.co/OsmNwPuFBK. Please help if you can. Promise you every dollar and prayer helps!— Demi Lovato (@ddlovato) August 30, 2017
Of course, we applaud everyone who’s assisting in any way they can, celebrity/singer/actor or not — every donation and helping hand counts. If you want to help Hurricane Harvey victims — but you may not have an extra $25,000 laying around to do Hart’s challenge — you can always donate to the Red Cross or another organization. And, Houston, we’re thinking about you.
