AceShowbiz - Kevin Hart is deeply concerned for the victims of Hurricane Harvey. The "Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle" actor has donated a large amount of money to the Red Cross to help those affected by the storm and asked celebrities like Drake and Chris Brown to do the same.
Kevin took to Instagram to say that he "will be calling out celebs daily." "Okay, my Harvey Hurricane donation site is now live and set up. Yesterday I called out a lot of people, today I'm calling out more, man. Instead of doing $25,000, I give $50,000," he said in a video. "Today I call out T.I., I call out Nelly, my boy Usher, Ludacris, James Harden, the rest of Houston Rockets [players] in general. I call out my man Chris Brown, Drake, simply anybody right now who's in a powerful position."

Kevin previously started Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge, saying that he had donated $25,000 to the victims and urged some celebrities to also make donations. "I think we've participated in a lot of challenges on the Internet, some meaningful, some meaningless, but we've all done them. I've been a person that's partaken in several of them," he said.
"At this point, this is a serious matter. I think the people are in bad shape and they need help. I'm going to lead the charge and step up in this way," Kevin continued, before calling on Beyonce Knowles, Jay-Z, Justin Timberlake, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Dave Chappelle and Steve Harvey to do the same.
Drake, who has been living in Houston for the past 8 years, didn't seem to need Kevin's challenge as he took to the photo-sharing platform to inform that he and DJ Future the Prince would be working with local relief groups to help the victims.
"I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years," the "Hotline Bling" hitmaker captioned a pic of Houston map. "Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need."
We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
