Sandra Bullock is doing her part to help those devastated by Hurricane Harvey.
The actress donated $1 million dollars to the relief efforts of the American Red Cross, according to People magazine.
“I’m just grateful I can do it,” Bullock said. “We all have to do our part.”
Elizabeth Penniman, vice president of communications at the Red Cross’ national headquarters, called it “an incredible gift.”
“Especially during times of disaster, people see what’s happening in Texas and our hearts all go out to them,” Penniman told People. “Having someone like Sandra Bullock make this kind of commitment, it helps bring people together and open their hearts and be even more generous.”
Among other celebrities to pledge their support for relief in Texas are Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Kim Kardashian West, Lin-Manuel Miranda, DJ Khaled, and Nicki Minaj.
The Walt Disney Company has also donated $1 million to Red Cross relief efforts. Facebook announced that it will match donations made on its website up to $1 million.
