Friday, September 01, 2017

Leonardo DiCaprio has joined the list of celebrities who have pledged donations to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. Through his Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, 'The Revenant' actor has donated USD 1 million to the newly established United Way Harvey Recovery Fund, reported Variety.

The newly established fund that was announced by United Way Worldwide on August 30 "will distribute 100 percent of donations for recovery in the affected areas, community by community, in the months and years ahead."

The USD 1 million from DiCaprio's foundation represents the inaugural donation to the fund. "We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Leonardo DiCaprio and his foundation," United Way Worldwide President and CEO Brian Gallagher said in a statement.

"Responding to Hurricane Harvey requires the best of all of us–and that's what this gift represents. United Way's Harvey Recovery Fund will provide much-needed help for the communities along the Gulf Coast where lives have been changed forever."
