Comedian and actor Kevin Hart is challenging some of Hollywood's power players to step up to the plate to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey. 

The 38-year-old actor recalled some of the other "internet challenges" that have gone viral in his Instagram post.  Hart donated $25,000 to help the victims of the storm, according to Sunday's video.

Kevin Hart called out other stars to join him in the challenge. He asked The Rock, Beyoncé, Chris Rock, Jerry Seinfeld, Jay Z, Steve Harvey, and Justin Timberlake to support the hurricane relief efforts with monetary donations. The comedian encouraged those stars to keep the challenge going by calling out other stars when they donate.

Hurricane Harvey has had a devestating effect on Texas. The category 4 hurricane made landfall on Friday, and it is still dumping rain across parts of the region. Texas' Gulf Coast and areas like Houston have faced the brunt of the storm. Experts say that parts of the area could receive up to 50 inches of rain from the storm. (see the video below)

Another star sending a message of support and raising money for the victims of Hurricane Harvey is Houston's own, J. J. Watt. The NFL player has started a fundraiser on You Caring.

You can help the victims of the storm too. The American Red Cross is accepting donations. Simply text the word HARVEY to 90999 to make a $10 donation. You can also visit redcross.org or call 1- 800-RED CROSS to make a donation.
