Chris Brown pledges $100k towards Hurricane Harvey victims

Chris Brown has donated $100,000 to those affected by Hurricane Harvey after his pal Kevin Hart made an appeal for stars to pledge some money to relief efforts.

A number of stars like Lady Gaga have already made financial contributions to help emergency services and other aid organisations deal with the aftermath of the natural disaster, and on Sunday (27Aug17), Kevin chose to launch a social media challenge to encourage his peers to send cheques to benefit the Red Cross relief efforts. We will come out of this stronger than ever. I'm donating $100,000 to relief efforts and hope you will join me.

"We've participated in a lot of challenges on the Internet, Some meaningful, some meaningless", says Hart in the Instagram video.

Among those who have already donated $25,000 to the Red Cross include Nicki Minaj, T.I. and DJ Khaled.
