AUSTIN - A star-studded show, that included performances by Willie Nelson, Paul Simon, James Taylor and Bonnie Raitt, helped raise money for the Rebuild Texas Fund, which goes toward Hurricane Harvey victims.
As of Monday morning, the Rebuild Texas fund had raised more than $68 million. Google pledged to match the first $500,000 of donations through the pledge challenge.
The total money raised from the concert hasn''t been calculated yet.
During the Texas Strong concert, phones were ringing off the hook as viewers pitched in for the fund
The goal of the benefit concert called “Texas Strong: Harvey Can’t Mess with Texas” is to help raise money for the Dell Foundation’s Rebuild Texas campaign.
The foundation hopes to raise $100 million which will be distributed to every single Texas county hit by Harvey.
You can still support the relief efforts in post-Hurricane Harvey Texas by calling 1-833-2-HELPTX, or online at www.RebuildTX.org to make a donation.
