Academy Award Winner, actor, and every girls dream Leonardo DiCaprio announced and fulfilled his subject, donating $1 million to the victims of Hurricane Harvey at the official Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund.
The Titanic star was praised by United Way Worldwide president and CEO Brian Gallagher for his contribution, stating:
“We are incredibly grateful for the generosity of Leonardo DiCaprio and his foundation. 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.”
This isn’t the first time DiCaprio’s organisation has lent a helping hand to others in past disasters – money was lent to the 2004 Boxing Day tsunami, the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and Hurricane Sandy in 2012.
