10 Celebrities That Donated Millions To Harvey Flood Victims

On the 25th of August, residents of Houston Texas were forced out of their homes by mother nature. Hurricane Harvey came in full force displacing hundreds of thousands and even scientists are still shocked at the impact of the storm.

With over 40 dead and over 100,000 people displaced, the government has a hell of a task helping the victims. It is just like the flood which displaced hundreds of thousands in Benue State, Nigeria. The effects of climate change could never have been more evident.

Here are 10 American celebrities including The President of the United States who have donated millions to the flood victims. I hope that Nigerian celebrities do such to Benue flood victims.
