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.

The finale will feature a performance from Texas native George Strait.

Organized by Scooter Braun and Houston rapper Bun B, there will be more than 2,000 call center volunteers stationed throughout the country taking donations.
