JJ Watt Harvey Relief Fund Breaks $10 Million ... Miley & Ellen Donate BIG!

As the audience cheered and applauded, Miley broke down in tears when she spoke about the empathy she feels for the hurricane's victims. In addition, Walmart announced today their commitment to donate $20 million in cash and supplies in support of Hurricane Harvey relief efforts. "It just really makes me upset so I really hope people know.I couldn't fake it", she said to DeGeneres, explaining her emotions were very raw and real.

She continued: "I really hope people know. I literally. This is...thank you", the Houston Texan player said as he was livestreamed onto Ellen's show.

At least 22 people have been killed by the storm since Friday, when it made landfall in Texas as a Category 4 hurricane. "Relief funds will be directed to the American Red Cross, Best Friends, the Greater Houston Community Fund, and other organizations providing important immediate and long-term relief and recovery services".

Meanwhile, Cyrus put in $500,000 of her own money to help with the disaster relief efforts, which will take a long time and cost billions ultimately.

A tearful Cyrus, 24, announced a $500,000 contribution in an emotional appearance on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show". "If I didn't have that it'd just be really hard, you know?" she began. The star was praised for her efforts as she donated a massive amount to the case and has claimed that people should be doing anything that they can to help in this situation. I promise that it will help rebuild Houston. I think that people are in bad shape and they need help.

In particular, Miley Cyrus' Hurricane Harvey donation will make a big impact.
