Chris Brown's $100k Hurricane Harvey pledge

Chris Brown's $100k Hurricane Harvey pledge

US-CERT, the USA government's chief agency responsible for detecting and minimizing cyber threats, issued an advisory on Monday warning people about the spike of online scams aimed at those donating to victims of Hurricane Harvey.

Celebrities have stepped up to the plate to assist those in need following the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey in Houston and other parts of Texas.

She continued, "I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John's in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can". Today, one of the world's biggest movie stars has also hopped on board with Hart's movement to help the people of Houston.

McGovern says that "what we do at The Better Business Bureau is what we do with Businesses-we evaluate them".

Young said in a post on Twitter Sunday that he would be donating $100,000 to benefit the Red Cross and called on others to join him. "I think the people are in bad shape and they need help".

At least nine people are believed to have been killed by Hurricane Harvey.

"Kevin Hart, I accept your challenge".




Hurricane Harvey has devastated the coastal Texas area with 130 mile per hour winds and heavy rainfall.

"It's extremely hard to have to watch the events of Hurricane Harvey unfold on TV and not be able to get back to Houston to help with the recovery efforts".

The actor, who has set up a fundraising page which now stands at $193,170 (£148,970), also called out more celebs to help him, including Brown, Usher, Ludacris, Nelly and Drake. If you're dealing with a paid fundraiser, ask for the name of the charity they represent, the percentage of your donation that will go to that charity, how much will go to the actual cause to which you're donating and how much will go to the fundraiser.

Musician Drake, who has lived in Houston for almost a decade said on Instagram that he and DJ Future the Prince are also working with local relief groups to "aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible".

As the information becomes available, we will update the list.

To ensure you don't donate to a fake relief fund, there are warning signs to look for.
