"I think we've all participated in challenges on the Internet, some meaningful, some meaningless. At this point, I'm going to start a real challenge. I'm challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead by donating $25K to Hurricane Harvey and the Red Cross."

The 38-year-old Philadelphia native then challenged a few more celebs:

And Beyoncé released this statement to The Houston Chronicle regarding her donation to her native city:

My heart goes out to my hometown, Houston, and I remain in constant prayer for those affected and for the rescuers who have been so brave and determined to do so much to help ... I am working closely with my team at BeyGOOD as well as my pastor (Rudy Rasmus at St. John's in downtown Houston) to implement a plan to help as many as we can.

There were also some who happily made a donation, but preferred it to be used by a different organization other than the American Red Cross, like T.I.:
