Leo DiCaprio Donates $1M To Hurricane Harvey Relief
Leonardo DiCaprio is the latest celebrity to step to the plate and donate to relief efforts in Texas.
More than 30,000 people have been displaced by Hurricane Harvey, which left a devastating trail of destroyed homes and flooded neighborhoods.
DiCaprio announced that through his eponymous foundation, $1 million (all figures U.S.) will go to the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund, which has pledged 100 per cent of the donation will go towards "recovery in the affected areas, community by community, in the months and years ahead.”
Other stars who have recently donated to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts include Miley Cyrus, who pledged $500,000; Kim Kardashian and her family, who gave $500,000; and Sandra Bullock, who donated $1 million earlier in the week.
Kevin Hart, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson, and Diddy have also made contributions to relief efforts.
