The stars of The Flash, Arrow, Supergirl, Supernatural and Valor show their support for Texas and the victims of Hurricane Harvey in a new video, and they're asking for your help.
Texas has been flooded by more than 20 trillion gallons of rain since it first made landfall, with roughly 100,000 homes being affected and more than 311,000 people having registered for disaster assistance, according to NBC News. The CW family encourages fans to donate whatever they can via an official donation website, with 100% of the proceeds going to people who need it most.

"We've had such an overwhelming outpouring of support for the victims of Hurricane Harvey, we've decided to keep this campaign going so we can make as big a positive impact as possible for those hit by this devastating storm! With that in mind, The Family Business Beer and Random Acts are proud to join forces with The CW. Together, with the help of our beloved #SPNFamily and all our generous donors, we're out to prove that we are truly Stronger than Storms," reads the mission statement.
"100% of every dollar raised will go to helping victims directly. Our goal is to support charities that serve needs that may otherwise be overlooked, so we're starting off by supporting the following organizations:
Americares. This organization helps communities recover from disasters by providing access to medicine, health care, and emergency supplies. They are currently on the ground in Texas delivering water, aid, supplies, and mobile medical assistance to hurricane victims.
The Texas Diaper Bank works to get diapers, baby supplies, and incontinence supplies to those in need. They work with 10 different counties in Texas, and last year served 14,000 children and delivered over a million items.
The Bastrop County Long Term Recovery Team. This group works with case managers to identify families with unmet needs after disasters and fulfill those needs. They work especially with low-income, uninsured or underinsured individuals and families and help them with recovery.
The SPCA of Texas. This organization is hard at work providing disaster relief to animals affected by the storm. They have set up temporary shelters and are providing housing and care to displaced or abandoned pets. Additionally, they are working to distribute food and provide other support to animals in need during this disaster. Your generous donations will help ensure that hurricane-affected animals are getting the shelter and care they deserve."
The video includes appearances from Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, Grant Gustin, Candice Patton, Danielle Panabaker, Carlos Valdes, Emily Bett Rickards, Melissa Benoist, Mehcad Brooks, Matt Barr and more. A partnership between The CW, Random Acts, and the Family Business Beer Company, the campaign has raised $345,286 of its $500,000 goal in just five days as of this writing.
