Leonardo DiCaprio has millions of fans around the world and it’s not just because of his acting talent, his exceptional good looks or his fabulous sense of humor. DiCaprio has always been an incredibly kind and generous person and his generosity has once again captured the hearts of many. If you’ve been following the tragedy in Texas and the wreck of havoc that Hurricane Harvey left in its wake, you’ll understand how badly help is needed.
LEONARDO DICAPRIO’S GENEROSITY
CEO Brian Gallagher expressed his gratitude and thanks, saying that the way people responded and are responding to Hurricane Harvey is showing the very best in people, and this amazing DiCaprio donation represents the best in all of us.
This is not the first time that the DiCaprio Foundation came forward to help. They helped and stepped in for many other natural disasters including the 2004 Tsunami, Hurricane Sandy and the Earthquake in Haiti.
There are many funds set up, including the Red Cross. DiCaprio chose The United Way Harvey Recovery Fund and is hoping others will join him although any donations towards any reputable fundraisers are much needed.
HARVEY RECOVERY FUND
Getting Texas back on its feet and helping the people is going to be years of hard work and will take a huge effort with the community coming together to help. There is a need for short term and immediate relief and long term relief and the United Way Harvey Recovery Fund will be there all the way, ensuring 100% of all donations reach the right people, families, and companies.
Many celebrities have stepped forward. For instance, Sandra Bullock provided USD 1 Million and the Kardashians have given USD 500,000. Beyonce, DJ Khaled, Jensen Ackles and more are all contributing large amounts of money and appealing to both the public and other celebrities for more. Apart from all this, The United Way Harvey Recovery Fund is also appealing to other organizations and individuals to donate.
