DJ Khaled took up Kevin’s challenge and pledged $25,000.
Ellen donated $25,000.
Kris Jenner and family donated $500,000.
My daughters and I accept your challenge @kevinhart4real. We will be donating $500,000 to @americanredcross and @salvationarmyus today to help those affected by Hurricane Harvey. We have been watching the heartbreaking footage of the catastrophic flooding in Houston and our hearts go out to the people of Texas.
