Native Texan Jamie Foxx and Houston rap legend Bun B are planning an immense telethon to raise funds for the Hurricane Harvey relief effort.
They’ve teamed up with the organizers behind the One Love Manchester benefit concert that occurred earlier this year, following a terrorist attack at an Ariana Grande concert in the British city.
The event is slated for Sept. 12th, and major television networks have committed to broadcasting the telethon during the prime time viewing slot.
“Texas hang in there,” said Foxx in the caption of an Instagram post yesterday that also teased the telethon. “Sending love[,] prayers[,] and finance.”
And he put his money where his mouth is. Foxx has donated $25,000 to GlobalGiving, an organization that has been supporting first responders and vetted local organizations dedicated to long-term recovery in Houston and the surrounding areas. (Learn more here.)
