Sandra Bullock is lending a helping hand to those who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey by offering $1 million.
The tropical storm has shattered the lives of those in Houston, Texas with many losing their homes to disastrous flooding and devastation along Texas’ Gulf Coast.
Sandra Bullock’s significant donation will benefit the American Red Cross and their constant determination to help those who have been affected by this tragedy.
“I’m just grateful I can do it,” The Heat actress said in a statement. “We have to take care of one another.”
The private actress has a long history of giving vast monetary contributions to people and various causes in need.
Previously, she has given a total of $5 million to the Red Cross to support relief efforts after numerous catastrophes since 2001.
The Oscar winner has also assisted in constructing a clinic in New Orleans’ oldest communal faculty and even gave money to keep the pool supervisor of the Beverly Hills Hotel going after financial suffering.
Bullock is the latest star to make a contribution and others such as Kim Kardashian and her family have offered $500,000.
Stand-up comedian Kevin Hart also initiated his own Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge, urging fellow superstars to individually give $25,000.
On the first day alone, Hart’s CrowdRise website collected $770,000+ from more than 3,000 individuals.
Other celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson, T.I. and more have all made financial contributions.
Houston-born superstar Beyoncé told The Houston Chronicle that she is working alongside the resident vicar to aid those affected. She released a statement about the tragedy:
“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 brave and determined to do so much to help.”
“I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus) to implement a plan to help as many as we can.”
We hope those who have been affected by this disaster find help and get back on their feet as soon as possible.
