Kevin Hart and Chris Young donate to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Comic Kevin Hart Gets Serious, Challenges Fellow Celebs to Help Harvey Relief Effort

"I'm challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead in donating $25,000".

The actor shared a video post on his Instagram at the weekend calling for some of his famous pals to dig deep into their pockets and donate the $25k (£19.1k) to The American Red Cross.

Hart then challenged a number of celebrities including Beyonce, Chris rock, Justin Timberlake, Steve Harvey, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Jay Z, Jerry Seinfeld and Dave Chappelle.

He continued, "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've just been caught up to speed with everything that's going on in Houston with Hurricane Harvey and this shit is unbelievable.




Also Sunday, country star Chris Young announced on Twitter that he has started an online fundraiser for the Red Cross and donated $100,000 to it.

Drake wrote on Instagram early Monday that he and his manager were working with local relief groups to help Texas affected by the hurricane.

"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.

While Hurricane Harvey continues to wreak havoc on parts of southeast Texas, displacing thousands with unprecedented rain and flooding, Coloradans may be wondering what they can do to help with relief efforts. I've been a person who's partaken in every one of them'. During a heartfelt moment at MTV's Video Music Awards, Katy Perry urged viewers to donate to the Red Cross. "We're praying for your safety in the days to come and we stand with you as you rebuild because we're all in this together". "Harvey is still a unsafe and historic storm".
