"I think we've participated in a lot of challenges on the internet, some meaningful, come meaningless, but we've all done them", Hart said in a video posted onto Instagram Sunday where he says he will donate $25,000 to the Red Cross.

"I think people are in bad shape, they need help", said Hart. He called out The Rock, Steve Harvey, Chris Rock, Dave Chappelle, Jay-Z, Beyonce, Justin Timberlake, Jerry Seinfeld and more.

"I have friends and family there, and I'm nearly certain my house down there may have to be torn down as it was in one of the areas that was hardest hit by winds and flooding", he said in a Twitter video. "I'm anxious about the people there - my friends, family and neighbors - and I want to help". "I'm going to lead the charge and step up in this way".

The deluge of support continued with country star Chris Young. Reportedly, five people have been killed and more than a dozen injured.

According to reports, Texas and parts of Louisiana have received at least two feet of rain and a reprieve isn't expected until the end of the week at the earliest. "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", the rapper captioned a photo of Texas. Katy Perry also tweeted a link to the Red Cross donation page and asked viewers of MTV's Video Music Awards to donate as she hosted the show Sunday night.

Despite his good intentions, Kevin was criticised for donating to the American Red Cross, with one follower telling him: "Don't donate to red cross or any other huge corporation". I'm praying for these people in Texas.
