With the situation in Houston being dire, people can’t afford to wait for first responders to rescue them. Neighbors are helping neighbors and strangers are helping strangers.

One of those helping others is singer Carl Thomas. He in in Houston helping those who need assistance in evacuating unsafe areas and homes due to Hurricane Harvey. The singer shared footage of him riding on his boat.

“I’m evacuating right now. I’ve got my dogs with me. Y’all pray for Houston. I’m not really worried, ultimately I know that whatever happens, it’s gonna be alright. It’s gonna be alright.”

He added:

“And waters are pretty high, you see me…I’m on a boat. Situation’s very serious. They’re evacuating our elderly and people that can’t help themselves.”

Meanwhile, as Hurricane Harvey continues to devastate Texas, celebrities, especially those with Houston ties, took to social media to say that they are thinking of Houston and everyone affected.

Houston native Beyoncè posted a photo showing her love and support.

  1. Also has anyone noticed that Beyonce didn’t hurry to help Houston at all till Kevin Hart and others started charity. Then she acts like she is so dedicated to Houston. Boycott her along with Joel Osteen. No difference.

      What is the point of us being so hard on each other. Whenever anyone is motivated to give others anything, I believe it should be appreciated. No one should have to “Race” to be First. Case closed. That’s not what is all about. Sharing one’s assets with others should be accepted whenever it is done. Think about it. Peace!

        It is not tomfoolery, the person is correct about the RED CROSS! they pocket the majority of the money and leave people to suffer, get the word out “F” the American Red Cross, I would never give to that organization, follow the money “Haiti” those people are still in need. The American Cross is full of shit!! they get the money pay out a little and pocket the rest. You need to wake UP!

      • The issue wasn’t about the Red Cross pocketing money. It concerns the Red Cross treating some people different than others because of the color of their skin. Had the post been about money being misappropriated, I wouldn’t have answered.
