Announcing the news on social media on Tuesday Kim wrote: “Houston we are praying for you! My mom, sisters & I will be donating $500,000 to @redcross and @salvationarmyus today #HoustonStrong.”
The family donation is one of the largest made by celebrities including Beyonce, T.I., Chris Brown, Jennifer Lopez, DJ Khaled, Drake, Dwayne Johnson, and Nicki Minaj following Kevin Hart‘s online video challenge to his peers to dig deep and donate to Texas relief efforts.
According to storm statisticians at America’s National Weather Service, Texas has never seen a storm like the category four Hurricane Harvey which dumped 50 inches of rain on Friday night, Aug. 25.
My question still is, DO YOU KNOW WHERE YOU ARE SENDING YOUR MONEY? Because sometimes some people say they are doing it for a certain cause but end up pocketing the money for some other crap. Good for them, it’s about time they step up but at the same time, I am hoping this money reaches them. I’ve done my donation and though it may not be as big as the celebs who put theirs in, it’s a donation.
And I know in one of my other posts, I stated that this was just some category one hurricane but in all honesty, I think certain media outlets try to paint the picture that some of these places aren’t going through a lot. Screaming “IT’S A HURRICANE, but don’t worry everything is fine.” I think the government and the media want us to let these people die, but as soon as the news gets out through other outlets, like the CNN REPORTER WHO GOT CURSED OUT, other media outlets run to the scenes with their cameras and their microphones interviewing victims. Why are you interviewing these people? Why not just do your damn stories and get out of there, because that is all YOU WANT! You aren’t donating anything and you aren’t doing much.
