President Trump Announces Recipients of His $1 Million Donation For Hurricane Harvey


A few days ago, President Trump made headlines by announcing he was donating $1 Million to Hurricane Harvey relief.

Today we found out where that $1 Million is going.

In a smart move, President Trump is spreading the donation among many charities.

Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse gets a large amount at $100,000.  The only two charities that get bigger amounts are the Red Cross and Salvation Army.

We are so proud to have Trump as our President, with actions like this!

From the WashingtonPost, here’s the breakdown:

President Trump gave $1 million of his own money to charities helping the Houston area recover from Hurricane Harvey, splitting the gift among 12 nonprofits, the White House announced Wednesday.

The gift had been promised late last week. In a statement, the White House said that Trump and first lady Melania Trump had witnessed some of these charities at work firsthand during their two visits to areas of Texas hit by the hurricane, which was the biggest rainstorm recorded in the history of the continental United States.

The White House said other recipients were “recommended, at the invitation of the President, by members of the White House Press Corps,” the White House statement said.

The two biggest individual gifts were given to large, mainstream charities: the American Red Cross and the Salvation Army would get $300,000 each, the White House said.

The next-largest gifts went to charities associated with Christian ministries.

The White House said Trump would give $100,000 to Samaritan’s Purse, an evangelical Christian aid agency  run by Franklin Graham, the son of famed evangelist Billy Graham. Franklin Graham has been a key political supporter of Trump’s: Last month, while Trump was under fire for his comments about the violence in Charlottesville, Graham publicly defended Trump and said the blame lay instead with Satan, for “evil in men’s hearts.”  Vice President Pence also met with Samaritan’s Purse volunteers during his separate trip to hurricane-ravaged areas.

Trump also said he would also give $100,000 to Reach Out America, a Houston-based charity connected to the United Pentecostal Church International.

The remaining gifts were all for $25,000 each. The White House said they would go to:

—Operation Blessing International, a faith-based disaster-relief charity based in Virginia Beach

—Catholic Charities

— The Houston Humane Society

—The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

—Team Rubicon, a charity that sends teams of military veterans to help in disaster zones.

—Portlight Inclusive Disaster Strategies, a nonprofit group that focuses on helping those with disabilities.

—Direct Relief, a medical-aid group which has shipped doses of medicines and vaccines — all of which must be kept cold — to flood-ravaged areas in Texas.
