Tragic updates continue coming from Houston, Texas, in the aftermath of Tropical Storm Harvey. Now many celebrities with the means to help are donating money, time, and support to assist the people affected by the floods. To keep track of all of the do-gooders out there in the celebrity universe, we've put together a list of the stars who have been working to help people survive after the big storm. Let's start with Sandra Bullock.

Sandra Bullock

Sandra Bullock donated $1 million to the American Red Cross. The star of the upcoming Ocean's 8 released a brief statement to People and said,

There are no politics in eight feet of water. There are human beings in eight feet of water.

Sandra Bullock has donated more than $5 million to other disaster relief funds in the past. For example, she gave $1 million for September 11 relief efforts in 2001, $1 million for tsunami relief efforts in 2004, and $1 million for Hurricane Katrina relief efforts. Rumor has it Bullock tries to donate the money quietly so as not to take attention away from the causes.

J.J. Watt

J.J. Watt is a defensive end for the Houston Texans, and now he is defending his city again with the Houston Flood Relief Fund, which he set up on YouCaring. On the page, Watt wrote,

Hurricane Harvey has taken a catastrophic toll on our great city, while leaving many stranded and in need of assistance. We must come together and collectively help rebuild the aspects of our community members lives that were damaged or lost. Any donation that you can spare, no matter how large or small, is greatly appreciated. We will come out of this stronger than ever. We are Texans.

As of this article's publishing, the fund was nearly at its goal of raising $10 million. Hopefully, the final amount far surpasses the goal.
