The effects of Hurricane Harvey are still being felt, and Houston Rockets star James Harden made a grand contribution to helping the cause. 

Hurricane Harvey has delivered disastrous flooding and historical rainfall to the city of Houston, causing a slew of athletes and entertainers to assist their civilian counterparts with both time and money. James Harden is now the latest.

The 28-year-old announced a donation of $1 million to the city of Houston, as well some surrounding areas. Harden joins teammate Chris Paul and owner Leslie Alexander as members of the Rockets to have given to the city; CP3 and Alexander have pledged $50,000 and $10 million, respectively.

Houston Texans star J.J. Watt has also organized a Harvey relief fund that recently surpassed $17 million(!!).

Harden’s called the city of Houston home since 2012 when the Oklahoma City Thunder traded him there in a deal that returned Jeremy Lamb, Kevin Martin and three draft picks. The Beard has done tremendous things for the Rockets, and they’ve made five consecutive trips to the postseason since he came over.

I’m doing my part by donating to various organizations to help with Harvey relief. Additionally, TBN Media is giving 25 percent of all proceeds from our store, The Hub, to J.J. Watt’s foundation.
