Hurricane Harvey has laid waste to much of Houston, Texas. Many people have died, and many more have lost their homes and belongings. With shelters rapidly filling and supplies limited, many Americans have been donating to the rebuilding effort. 

Popular television host Ellen DeGeneres has stepped up to donate $1,000,000 to the aid effort. She is thrilled to have the means available to make a difference in the lives of those living in Houston. And she is a deeply troubled by the lives lost, the homes ruined, and the deep tragedy suffered by so many of her fellow Americans. 

Several days ago the TV host remarked that she would donate $50,000 of her own money to the rebuilding effort. She also encouraged her viewers to do what they could as well, asking them to donate $10 of their own money. This modest donation was praised by those in the media. Yet this wasn't enough, it seemed. Two days later she made another big announcement – this time that she would be presenting a mighty $1,000,000. 

Miley Cyrus also donated $500,000 of her own money. 

What do you think? Didn't they do a great thing by donating for Harvey victims? Even if we aren't able to send large sums of money, we are all able to send our prayers to the victims and their families. In breaking news, here are the Hollywood celebrities who will be donating for Harvey victims.
