Marshmello Donates $100,000 To Hurricane Harvey Relief
We have all seen the massive devastation Hurricane Harvey has left in Houston and the surrounding area. It is terrible times like this where we as a people must come together.
Recently, many individuals have taken it upon themselves to donate what he or she can. Any little bit really contributes to helping save the lives of all those affected. This also holds true to the many celebrities who have donated thousands of dollars to this disaster. Several celebrities such as Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian, and Leonardo DiCaprio have donated to help those affected, and just a few days ago, Marshmello donated $100,000 to the American Red Cross to help with the destruction of Hurricane Harvey.
Marshmello writes along with his post on Facebook:
“Seeing all of the images and videos of the destruction that Hurricane Harvey has caused to the city of Houston breaks my heart. When something tragic like this happens it really affects us all not only as Americans but as people, no matter what race, color, or religion we are. On behalf of the mellogang and myself I will be donating $100,000 to the American Red Cross. I encourage everyone including my mellogang and fellow colleagues to do what they can to help the people of Texas. God bless #mellogang#hurricaneharvey #hurricaneharveyreliefchallenge“
His last hashtag has to do with the Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge started by Kevin Hart. Although controversial, the campaign has encouraged celebrities to donate money. Hart donated to the Red Cross and then tagged other celebrities to match his donated amount. Although some individuals were unhappy with this tactic, it most likely came from a good place.
Marshmello and other celebrities have taken this task to spread awareness and hopefully, encourage their fans to donate as well. Whether you can donate $5 or $100,000, it is inspiring to see so many people coming together in order to help with Hurricane Harvey. Every little bit helps.
