We've already heard news of many celebrities donating money to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey, but now comes a word that a telethon will be held next week with some pretty big superstars! George Clooney, Beyoncé, Oprah Winfrey, and Julia Roberts are among those who have already signed on. Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey will air on CBS, ABC, NBC, Fox, and CMT on Sept. 12 at 8 p.m. ET (with a replay set for 8 p.m. PT). The show will also stream on Facebook, YouTube, and Twitter. Proceeds from the telethon will benefit United Way of Greater Houston, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas and The Mayor’s Fund for Hurricane Harvey Relief (administered by the Greater Houston Community Fund) through the Hand in Hand Hurricane Relief Fund managed by Comic Relief USA. In addition to the above celebs, Karlie Kloss, Matt Lauer, Rob Lowe, Matthew McConaughey, Norah O’Donnell, Dennis Quaid, Kelly Rowland, Adam Sandler, Ryan Seacrest, Michael Strahan, Blake Shelton, George Strait, Barbra Streisand, and Reese Witherspoon will also take part. (More celebrities will also apparently join the roster.) Strait, meanwhile, is set to perform “directly from his benefit concert at San Antonio’s Majestic Theatre.” So mark it on the calendar. Tuesday night at 8pm! And remember there are a lot of ways we can help too. One way is by texting HARVEY to 90999, which is a ten dollar donation that will show up on your cell phone bill.
