Drake Announces $200,000 Donation to Hurricane Harvey Relief Efforts
In the wake of Hurricane Harvey, Drake was one of the first celebrities to step up with promises to aid in the relief effort.
Though he was in London at the time, Drake immediately made it clear he’d do whatever he could to help the city that he calls a “second home,” and now, he’s made a whopping $200,000 donation to relief efforts aiding hurricane victims.
The fundraising effort is led by Houston Texans player J.J. Wyatt, who is hosting a fundraiser on YouCaring.com. Drake, who hosts an annual Houston Appreciation Weekend in the city, pledged $200,000 to the effort and urged others to do what they can.
Already, a slew of celebrities have stepped up to offer financial support, including Houston natives Solange and Beyoncé, as well as Kevin Hart, T.I., Dwayne Johnson, DJ Khaled, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown and others. Trae tha Truth went as far as to rescue victims in boats at the height of the danger. Houston native, Bun B also announced that he’ll be hosting a telethon in support victims.
