Beyonce offers help to Hurricane Harvey victims

"I'm committed to partnering with organisations on the ground in Houston and making contributions to uplift the city that raised me with so much love", she wrote in a statement on Instagram.

And Rudy has confirmed that Beyonce has already made a "significant donation".

Bey has always kept her life and financial endeavors private. "She has really stepped up and it's been a real blessing for us". The singer said she is working closely with her organization BeyGOOD and her pastor to find ways to help those affected.

TMZ reported that, Kevin Hart called out Bey and Jay-Z to donate to $25k.

Beyoncé said she's praying "for the rescuers who have been so courageous and determined". "And that donation is getting us to launch out into some areas that help us more effectively impact the communities that have been the most affected".

The state of Texas is facing a lengthy recovery effort after Hurricane Harvey caused billions of dollars-worth of damage in the state this weekend.

You may have watched the devastation Harvey has wreaked in Texas and beyond, and want to do something to help the thousands of people who have been displaced by flooding. It gradually went from a Hurricane to a tropical thunderstorm. "We are also going to be coordinating volunteers who are going to go into these neighborhoods, and start helping to rebuild some of these homes for the most needy in our city".

And Sandra - who owns a home in nearby Austin - isn't the only celebrity to pledge support to the relief effort. Five people are reported to have died as a result of the adverse weather conditions, which is expected to continue in Texas and Louisiana this week.
