The city of Houston continues to deal with the impact of Hurricane Harvey.
The southeast Texas gulf region was dealt 19 trillion gallons of rain during the four-day storm, with that number expecting to rise.
The mass flooding and devastation led to nearly 17,000 people seeking rescue shelters by Monday night after being displaced from their homes, according to the American Red Cross.
Several celebrities and athletes have used their status as prominent public figures to raise and donate money toward relief efforts.
On Wednesday, John Wall became the latest athlete to donate to the cause.
The super-max deal star posted on his Instagram story Tuesday night that he would be accepting both comedian Kevin Hart and Texans' defensive end J.J. Watt's challenge to donate 25,000 dollars to each of their relief effort campaigns.

So far, Kevin Hart has raised close to 1 million dollars and J.J. Watt raising over 5 million dollars.
Wizards players have also come together to raise funds for the victims.
It started with a group text message and by Monday several Wizards players including John Wall, Bradley Beal, Otto Porter and Markieff Morris had raised $250,000.
Wizards majority team owner Ted Leonsis also contributed to the Red Cross in addition to President Ernie Grunfeld and head coach Scott Brooks.
