instead by rallying the masses
to show their support.
Disney channel actress,

to gather support and collect
more donations for Harvey

have gone as far as to initiate
fundraisers, such as J.J Watt
and Ludacris. Watts foun-

fundraising efforts. One con-
tributor happened to be the
owner of the large franchise,
Walmart, which donated a
check of $1,000,000. Rap sing-
