*Beyoncé, Janet Jackson, Jennifer Garner, Kevin Hart and Kristen Bell were among the celebrities in Houston and Florida over the weekend spending time with the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma.
In a series of photos posted on her Instagram account, the singer, her daughter Blue Ivy and her Beygood team worked to help those who lost their homes in the devastating natural disaster, serving food and posing for photos as she hugged and talked to the victims.
Thanks to everyone who donated to BeyGOOD and contributed to helping so many families in Houston. Thank you Pastor Rudy, Michelle, Ingrid and all at St. John’s Church. Thank you to Trae Tha Truth and your crew. Y’all are so consistently dedicated to our community. Thank you!! There is still work to do so please continue to donate and do all you can to restore our city.
Janet Jackson, in town with her “State of the World” tour, surprised survivors of Hurricane Harvey at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, where approximately 1,600 evacuees were staying.
Kevin Hart, along with NBA star Chris Paul, also posted via Instagram a video of himself on site where water and other supplies were being distributed to survivors of Harvey. He wanted to show donors that their money was being put to immediate use.
“Frozen” star Kristen Bell was filming a movie in Orlando, Fla. and couldn’t get a flight out as Irma approached. Before she prepared to hunker down for the worst Sunday, she visited Meadow Woods Middle School where she sang “For the First Time in Forever” from “Frozen to residents” who had taken shelter there.
Bell also found time to save several family members of her celebrity friends who were in the area and could not get to safety.
Her “Frozen” co-star Josh Gad posted Saturday that when his parents and other family members were stranded in Florida, “she got them a hotel room at her hotel in Orlando and saved them, my brothers, my sister-in-law and niece and nephew.”
So @kristenanniebell literally saved my parents and my entire family tonight from #hurricaneirma . When they were stranded in Florida, she got them a hotel room at her hotel in Orlando and saved them, my brothers, my sister-in-law and niece and nephew. They don’t make them like this girl. Thank you Kristin. You are truly an angel sent from above. And thank you @ewablueeyes for bother her when I asked you not to!!!!
“Dexter” alum Jennifer Carpenter reached out to her friend Bell upon realizing that her grandmother and aunt were stuck in coastal Tampa. Bell found a way to get the two women to her location and offer them a room.

Jennifer Garner, a trustee and ambassador for the Save the Children organization stopped by several venues in Houston on Friday and posted a touching message on Instagram about her experience. “Today I was inspired by the huge hearts in Texas,” she wrote. “There is a generosity of spirit that gets lost in political rhetoric, but — people come together in a time of crisis.”
Today I was inspired by the huge hearts in Texas. There is a generosity of spirit that gets lost in political rhetoric, but– people come together in a time of crisis. You know what’s beautiful? Children look for light. Terrifying things have happened to these kids in the past couple of weeks, but they don’t want to dwell on those stories. They want to tell you that their neighbor’s puppy was found. That they saved their mother’s life by throwing her a rope when the flood water overcame her and now she’s ok. That they all celebrated when power came back on. We have to protect our kids and we have to learn from them.
