Sports teams from Houston and surrounding areas showed their fans some love with generous contributions.

Pop superstar Chris Brown accepted Hart's challenge, responding in a Twitter video that he would donate $100,000 to relief efforts.

Initially, he donated $25,000 to the funds and later added $25,000 more, urging his fellows from the art world to do the same. "It really don't matter what it is as long as you're giving from your heart so I don't think you have to do that with other people, just let them give from their heart".

LMAO! He went on to call out his friends like DC Youngfly, Joe Budden and Young Joc to give anything from $35-$50. "We survived and we got stronger, and so will you". And besides, every dollar helps.

"I think we've participated in a lot of challenges on the internet, some meaningful, some meaningless, but we've all done them".

He said: "I have friends and family there and I'm nearly certain my house down there may have to be torn down as it was in one of the areas that was hardest hit by winds and flooding".

Hart's Jumanji co-star Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson announced a $25,000 donation to the Red Cross and said his companies would also donate money.

"I'm blessed that Kevin Hart made a donation". The people are in bad shape and they need help.

The Kardashian and Jenner women have donated $500,000 to the Red Cross and the Salvation Army, Kim Kardashian announced on social media Tuesday. As of press time, Hart's fund has collected nearly $800,000, with all money going to the Red Cross to help those impacted by the disaster.
