In an effort to help the people affected by Hurricane Harvey, dozens of celebrities will join forces for Hand in Hand, a telethon to raise money. The one-hour special comes from rapper Bun B and SB Projects founder Scooter Braun. Viewers can donate via phone, text, and online.
Presenters include George Clooney, Beyoncé, Jaime Foxx, Karlie Kloss, Matt Lauer, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Norah O’Donnell, Dennis Quaid, Julia Roberts, Kelly Rowland, Adam Sandler, Ryan Seacrest, Blake Shelton, Michael Strahan, George Strait, Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey, and Reese Witherspoon — with more to be announced in the coming week.
“Hand in Hand will bring the country together to raise funds, spirits and help rebuild Texas in the wake of this unprecedented devastation,” states the press release. “Proceeds from the telethon will benefit United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief (administered by the Greater Houston Community Fund) through the Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Fund managed by Comic Relief USA.”
Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey will air at 8 p.m. ET Sept. 12 on the major networks: CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, as well as CMT. It will also be live streamed on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter.
