Stars do­nate

Irish Examiner - - World News -

San­dra Bul­lock has do­nated $1m (€840,000) to the Amer­i­can Red Cross, as Hol­ly­wood stars pledge money to help the thou­sands af­flicted by Storm Har­vey. Co­me­dian and ac­tor Kevin Hart threw down the gaunt­let and asked stars to match his do­na­tion of $50,000. For­mer wrestler Dwayne “The Rock” John­son, who made $65m in the year up to June ac­cord­ing to Forbes, said he pledged $25,000. The Kar­dashi­ans do­nated $500,000 col­lec­tively to the Red Cross and Sal­va­tion Army. Bey­oncé, who is from Hous­ton, told the Hous­ton Chron­i­cle her phil­an­thropic or­gan­i­sa­tion BeyGOOD would be try­ing to help re­lief ef­forts. “My heart goes out to my home town, Hous­ton, and I re­main in con­stant prayer for those af­fected and for the res­cuers who have been so brave and de­ter­mined to do so much to help,” she said.
