HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) - Yesterday we told you about Kevin Hart's challenge to his celeb friends on behalf of all those affected by the destruction of Hurricane Harvey. The Rock responded saying, "things like this has a way of bringing us together as a country. Regardless of race and politics, we all want to step up to the plate do everything we can to help out our brothers and sisters and families in need." He also had a personal message for the people of Houston. In his video, The Rock says: "You gotta stay strong, you gotta hold onto faith. I know what you're going thru, I went thru it, my family went thru it, we went thru Hurricane Andrew which was a category 5 hurricane; the eye of that storm crossed directly over us, it was devastating, we survived, and we got stronger and so will you." He also said if anybody could donate at least a buck or two to the American Red Cross to help in the efforts he would appreciate it. He also donated $25,000 for the effort in Texas.
