Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation Donates $1 Million to Support Victims of Hurricane Harvey
Leonardo DiCaprio is using his Hollywood status for good.
As thousands of residents across Southeastern Texas and Southwestern Louisiana continue to be affected by Hurricane Harvey, several familiar faces are stepping up and making a difference for strangers in need.
Earlier today, United Way Worldwide announced the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund that “will distribute 100 percent of donations for recovery in the affected areas, community by community, in the months and years ahead.”
Leonardo isn’t the first celebrity to step up in a big way to help thousands of residents displaced by flooding and other damages.
Earlier this week, Sandra Bullock flexed her star power and pledged $1 million to help victims. Kim Kardashian and her familydonated $500,000 to the American Red Cross. And Tyler Perry recently announced in a Facebook video that he would be donating $1 million to the tragedy.
“As someone who is from New Orleans and was involved in helping those affected by Katrina, he knows all too well how this affects everyday lives and he wanted to do something to give back,” a source shared with us.
Kevin Hart also launched his own Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge that encourages stars to give $25,000 to assist Texas residents.
“Just crossed the 1 million dollar mark,” the actor shared on Instagram Wednesday afternoon. “This is an example of love & support. Thank you all for your generosity.”
