In the latest charitable act from one of our fave celebs, singer Pink just donated half a million dollars to Harvey relief efforts. Just a few days before Justin Bieber announced his own hurricane donation, the Red Cross Los Angeles confirmed that the “What About Us” singer gave $500,000 to its charity.
On Friday, the organization shouted out Pink’s incredible gift on Twitter, expressing gratitude at the singer’s show of support towards those who have been displaced or otherwise affected by the widespread devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey, which produced historic flooding in Houston and the surrounding areas when it made landfall on August 25.
“Thank you @Pink from the bottom of our ❤️ for your donation of a half million dollars to @RedCross #HurricaneHarvey relief efforts!” the organization tweeted.
The organization also posted a video of its staff members thanking Pink for her generous gesture.
“We’re partial to red, but pink is great, too. Thank you @ Pink for your generous donation to our # HurricaneHarvey relief efforts.”
Way to go, Pink! It absolutely warms our hearts to see celebrities continue to step up and show compassion to the victims of Hurricane Harvey during following has to be one of the most traumatic experiences ever, and what will surely be a very long and arduous recovery process.
Since the storm tore through the Texas coast and forced thousands of people to evacuate their homes, we’ve witnessed a non-stop outpouring of support from celebs like Drake, Sandra Bullock, Kevin Hart, and Zendaya, who have all made sizable donations and rallied for others to make contributions as well.
We can only hope that the flood victims are as encouraged by these efforts as we are.
