"I would encourage people to do their research and use charities that are well known in the community, and that they have given contributions to in the past", said Georgia Secretary of State, Brian Kemp. Some meaningful, some meaningless, but we've all done 'em.

Kevin Hart has called on celebrities to raise money for the people of Texas as a tropical storm continues to affect the USA state. I also want to thank all the men and women of service and volunteers for their courageous efforts to help people in need. "Instead of donating $25,000, I did $50,000".

T.I. echoed Brown's doubts and announced he'd send $25,000 to Houston and Nicki Minaj, DJ Khaled and The Rock (who did give to the Red Cross) followed suit per their Instagram pages. I'm going to lead the charge by stepping up in this way'.

"Kevin Hart, I accept your challenge".

He said: "Serious moment right now, I've just caught up to speed with everything going on in Houston with Hurricane Harvey and this s**t is unbelievable".

Hurricane Harvey has devastated the coastal Texas area with 130 mile per hour winds and heavy rainfall. For the Houston Harvey challenge, I'll dedicate 25k to it. Chris Brown went above and beyond, donating $100,000, though not to the Red Cross because he's "skeptical" about the organization.

Kevin challenged Jay-Z, Beyonce, Chris Rock, Justin Timberlake, Steve Harvey and Dwayne Johnson amongst others to donate.

As we continue to see the devastating effects of Hurricane Harvey's destruction, scammers and internet trolls have already begun to take advantage of well-meaning people trying to donate to good causes.
