In an Instagram video, Hart said:
“I think we’ve participated in a lot of challenges on the internet, some meaningful, some meaningless, but we’ve all done them. […] At this point I’m going to start a real challenge. I’m challenging a lot of my celebrity friends to follow my lead in donating $25,000 to Hurricane Harvey, to the Red Cross, okay? At this point, it’s a serious matter. I think the people are in bad shape, and they need help. I’m going to lead the charge in stepping up in this way.”
Hart is calling it “The Hurricane Harvey Relief Challenge.” Hart ended the video by challenging several celebrities by name, including Beyoncé, The Rock, Chris Rock, Jay-Z, Dave Chappelle, Steve Harvey, and Justin Timberlake.
Let’s hope this challenge goes viral.
