All 5 Living US Presidents Come Together for Hurricane Harvey Relief, Likely Irma
Last Thursday all 5 living presidents - Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama launched the One American Appeal to help raise money for Hurricane Harvey recovery efforts, and the appeal will likely be expanded to help U.S. victims of Hurricane Irma as well.
From their website their mission is to encourage fellow citizens to support recovery efforts from Hurricane Harvey and most likely this appeal will expand to help those affected by Hurricane Irma as it left a path of destruction on the Carribean Islands and preparing to make landfall in the United States.
According to International Business Times, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said damages from the hurricane have totaled over $180 billion to cover 200,000 homes over a 300-mile radius.
The donations, which can be made through OneAmericaAppeal.org, will be distributed through the Houston Harvey Relief Fund and Rebuild Texas Fund.
