  • How Hoosiers can help the people impacted by Harvey

For everyone else, you can donate your money to support those people.

With the effects of Hurricane Harvey and the flooding in Texas, many people are opening their hearts and wallets to try to help the victims in the area. "I think we've participated in a lot of challenges on the internet, some meaningful, some meaningless, but we've all done them", Hart said.

Dozens of other celebrities have tweeted their thoughts and prayers to Houston and other parts of Texas. "While there may be a sense of urgency, we encourage people to carefully consider who exactly they are giving to, making sure they are actually providing relief to those in need", said Chicago and Northern Illinois President and CEO Steve J. Bernas. Country musician Chris Young has pledged $100,000 and asked others to donate in a Twitter video. "I think the people are in bad shape and they need help".

McGovern says that "it's not necessarily a charity, it's a scammer it's some organization somewhere if it's just one person sitting in a room somewhere there is people are always trying to get your money". For the Houston Harvey challenge, I'll dedicate 25k to it.
