Just reported the The Walt Disney Company and Houston ABC affiliate KTRK has pledged $1 million to the Red Cross to go toward Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. The Disney ABC Television Group will be hosting a Day of Giving on August 31 to raise money for hurricane relief starting with the local morning affiliates and ABC’s Good Morning America.
“Our hearts go out to everyone in the devastating path of this historic storm,” Disney CEO Bob Iger said in a statement. “It’s hard to fully appreciate the impact, in part because it isn’t over yet. But we know thousands of people have lost everything and now face the daunting challenge of putting their lives and communities back together, and we’re using our unique resources and reach to help those in need.”
