Watch the Hurricane Relief Telethon Live Stream

Harvey Telethon

Beyonce, George Clooney, Justin Bieber, Stephen Colbert, and Reese Witherspoon are among the stars participating in a live telethon to raise money for relief following the destruction caused by hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

The telethon was originally formed to raise funds for victims of Hurricane Harvey in Houston, Texas, but has since expanded to include relief for Irma, which hit parts of Florida after devastating the Caribbean islands last week.

      Oprah would never miss 100m out of her 3 billion worth. and she has a new show coming out soon.
      All the stars could have been required to donate at least 2 m in order to be included in the telethon in exchange for the free publicity they receive.

      I can’t help laughing because these self-absorbed, group-think douche-bags are patting themselves on the back for soliciting a mere 14 million dollars when, if they had just shut their mouths, it would have been much, much more. Much, much more. They could have drummed up at least 14 million dollars amongst themselves by just writing personal checks.

      Oprah has 3 billion she’d never miss 20m.
