The devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey has motivated many to assist in any way that they can. Communities in the Houston area and beyond are giving it their all to help the ones affected by this devastating storm.
In one case, the Oscar-winning actress and personality Sandra Bullock has donated $1 million dollars to the American Red Cross relief efforts.
“I’m just grateful I can do it. We have to take care of one another.”
The actress said in a statement to E! News.
That’s something Bullock, who’s long supported the American Red Cross and other charities, really knows about.
Bullocks donations following the September 11 terrorist attacks, tsunamis in Indonesia and Japan, Hurricane Katrina and the latest storm have totaled $5 million to the Red Cross. Also donating another $1 million to Doctors Without Borders.
