Kevin Hart initiated the #HurricaneHarveyReliefChallenge, once he found out about the disaster. Many people accepted the challenge like Chris Brown, The Rock, Waka Flocka and Tammy Riviera, Kandi Burruss, and many more. Others pledged to launch their own charity relief drives like Beyonce, who was also challenged by the comedian.

But Master P doesn’t think the challenge was necessary. He feels like people shouldn’t be pressured to donate whopping amounts money. He made a substantial donation but didn’t mention the exact amount. Master P empathizes with the victims of Hurricane Harvey because his hometown is New Orleans, and yesterday marked the 12th anniversary of Hurricane Katrina.

Just like Master P said in the video here, any donation, no matter how large or small, is welcomed and appreciated. Donations also don’t have to include money, it can be food, sanitary items, transportation, clothes, literally anything.
