Celebrities react, donate to Hurricane Harvey relief

2016 iHeartRadio Music Festival- Night 1- Show

Hart said that people participate in a lot of internet challenges, both meaningful and meaningless, and he'd like to start a Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge by calling on his celebrity friends to donate $25,000 to the Red Cross for the storm's victims.

The comedian also challenges his celebrity friends including Dwayne Johnson, Beyonce, Jay-Z, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jerry Seinfeld, Steve Harvey and Justin Timberlake to "follow his lead" and do the same.

'At this point, it's a serious matter. "I'm anxious about the people there - my friends, family and neighbors - and I want to help". "I'm going to lead the charge in stepping up in this way". 'I've just been caught up to speed with everything that's going on in Houston with Hurricane Harvey and this shit is unbelievable.

And recent MTV VMAs host Katy Perry tweeted a link to the Red Cross' donation efforts to more than 100 million followers on Twitter.

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

As for Beyonce, who is from Houston originally, she posted a message to Instagram, writing: "Texas, you are in my prayers".

The storm has claimed the lives at least five people and FEMA, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, revealed it would take the area years to recover from the storm which is the worst this decade.

"I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need", the rapper said on Instagram. "Texas has been hit hard by Hurricane Harvey", the country singer captioned a video of himself, urging people to give to the organization.

"I am praying for the safety of all those affected". By Monday morning, up to 40 inches of rain had fallen on northeast Houston.
