The Rock has donated $25000 to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts

Chris Brown

Actor and comedian Kevin Hart has surpassed the $1 million mark on a crowdfunding effort to benefit victims of Hurricane Harvey after the devastating storm made landfall in Texas last week, but he says there's more work to be done.

"There are human beings in eight feet of water".

"I implore and encourage anybody else who can change and make a change for this to please donate", Brown said in a video posted on social media.

Houston native and pop megastar Beyoncé released a statement to the Houston Chronicle: "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 fearless".

Since Hart issued his Hurricane Harvey challenge, Chris Brown announced plans to donate $100,000.

Also on Instagram, the actress told fans: "We've been watching everything that's been going on down in Houston and our hearts are just breaking". "It really don't matter what it is as long as you're giving from your heart so I don't think you have to do that with other people, just let them give from their heart". "I've been a person that's partaken in several of them", Hart said on Instagram.

Thus, Chelsea have proposed half of that fee and feel that Barkley could be a highly useful player at Stamford Bridge. The Spaniard worked with Conte at Juventus during the 2013/14 season.

Unlike Hart, who asked his A-list celeb friends to donate $25,000, Blackson asked for a little bit less from his slightly less prominent friends.

"I want to send a message to the people of Houston - stay strong and you have to hold onto faith. I don't think you have to do that with other people".

Numerous celebrities have stepped up to contribute money to aid those affected by the natural disaster, which made landfall Friday.

Kim Kardashian West announced her family will donate US$500,000 to the Red Cross and Salvation Army.

Former "Bachelor" star Sean Lowe borrowed a boat and went down to Houston to lend a helping hand.
