Sandra Bullock Donated $1 Million To Relieve Those Affected By Hurricane Harvey

Actress Sandra Bullock stepped up to help Texas and Louisiana people who have been affected by Hurricane Harvey by donating $1 million to the Red Cross. In a statement, she said: “I’m just grateful I can do it. We have to take care of one another.”


The Category 4 hurricane dumped at least 11 trillion gallons of rain on Texas. At least eleven people died from the monster storm, which according to experts was exacerbated by climate change.


The hurricane' diameter was 280 miles with winds of approximately 130 mph during its first landfill. Fortunately, Bullock along with other individuals have donated funds to help.


As the vice president of communications for the Red Cross, Elizabeth Penniman, told CNN, the organization is “thankful for the overwhelming and generous response from those who want to help those affected by this devastating storm.”


She added:


“Massive disasters like Hurricane Harvey create many critical and immediate needs, so we are heartened by donations like this — which allows us to provide immediate shelter, food, and comfort to thousands in need. The entertainment community has been so supportive to the Red Cross in response to this devastating disaster, and we are so grateful.”
