Hand In Hand Cover

Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Relief is the live telethon to benefit people affected by the impact of Hurricane Harvey and Hurricane Irma. Having initially begun as an initiative to aid in the relief of Harvey’s victims in Houston, Irma’s devastation was recently added to be included in the event’s efforts by its leading organizer, rapper & Houston native, Bun B. He said, “It was initially created to get funds here for Hurricane Harvey, but now with the impending Hurricane Irma coming in, we’re realizing now that some of these resources might have to be sent to the people of Florida.

Proceeds from the fundraising will go to the Rebuild Texas Fund, ASPCA, Best Friends, Direct Relief, Feeding Texas, Feeding Florida, Habitat for Humanity, Save the Children and United Way. Throughout the one-hour event, you can expect to see performances and appearances from Beyoncé, Oprah, Diddy, Questlove, Travis Scott, Timbaland, Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio and many more.

‘Hand in Hand’ will air on regular network/cable channels such as NBC, ABC, Fox, CBS, BET, E!, Oxygen, MTV, Bravo, etc., and on Apple Music, Beats 1, HuffPost, Twitter, Yahoo, YouTube, HBO, iHeartMedia, SiriusXM, etc. You can donate by phone and text during the telethon which begins tonight at 8pm Eastern, or online here.
