“Just wanted to let everyone in Texas know, we got you. From a fellow Texan, my heart goes out, my prayers go out”

The home is where the heart is, and Jamie Foxx knows that. Terrell, TX native Foxx announced he’s giving back to his home state, donating $25,000 and hosting a telethon on September 12 for Hurricane Harvey relief.

In an Instagram video posted Tuesday, August 29, the 49-year-old Oscar-winning actor said that he already donated $25,000 to GlobalGiving to help hurricane victims. And continued to say, “September 12, we have a telethon that we’re doing. We’ll give you more details, so we can raise as much money as we can for everybody down there.”

All we know thus far is that the star-studded telethon will be hosted simultaneously in Los Angeles, New York and Nashville. The Nashville hosts will be Reese Witherspoon and Blake Shelton, with Fox in L.A. along with Houston native Hilary Duff, according to TMZ.
