Hart goes on to challenge his friends The Rock, Beyonce and Jay-Z,, Dave Chapelle, Justin Timberlake, and many others.
Although not specifically mentioned by Mr. Hart, Drake is also sending prayers and taking the leadership in providing relief all the way from London.
The rapper took to his Instagram with a message for the people of Houston as well.
We are currently overseas in London and all I can think about is how devastated I am as I look at images of the damage Hurricane Harvey has caused. I am praying for the safety of all those affected. Houston has truly been a home to me over the last 8 years. Myself and @futuretheprince are working with local relief groups to aid and assist the people of Texas in anyway we can and in the most immediate way possible. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. I encourage everyone to do what they can to assist the people of Texas knowing whatever effort you can make to help will go a long way.
