Posted on 09/12/2017 4:16:42 PM PDT by SMGFan
A one-hour hurricane relief benefit originally intended to help Texas victims of Harvey but expanded to help people affected by Irma, is set to air across more than a dozen television networks on Tuesday.
The "Hand in Hand" telethon will originate from Los Angeles but also will feature stages in New York and Nashville, Tennessee. Beyonce, Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey, Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Timberlake are among the stars scheduled to participate.

Caught the opening number. Stevie Wonder still in great voice. Nice choir.
All the white people manning the phones had no idea where the beat was. Clapped just like white people.
This event will almost certainly be politicized if Barbra Streisand being one of the hosts. She will not able to help herself.
I will pass on watching.
SA recently moved to the Dark Side.
And on the Presidents, with the exception of Jimmy Carter. It would be nice if the stars and the Presidents spent the hour telling how much they donated.
Beyonce just went there. She blamed the hurricanes on “climate change”. She read it off the cue card that was written for her.
Knew it...this event is disguised as a charity event but in reality is going to be exploited to push a political agenda. If she read it off of a cue card that means it was organized in advance to be such.
Apparently we’ve never had peak hurricane season before “climate change” according to them. If the exact same storms had stayed out to sea, I guess that would not have been climate change.
Climate change was right out the gate with Stevie Wonder. We happened to have on the channel, having just watched Jeopardy. Once he said something about climate change, about 30 seconds in, that was it. Channel off.
On a side note, was sickened to see Wheel of Fortune award a puzzle win trip to, of all places, CUBA! OMG! I was sickened by that! Contestant sure had to be, as well.
Thank you! Excellent post!
At least they are trying.
Gotta give credit where it’s due.
“Beyonce, Barbra Streisand, Oprah Winfrey, Drake, Leonardo DiCaprio and Justin Timberlake are among the stars scheduled to participate.”
My guess is George's liberal wife, with her background and faith in public education, had much to do with George deciding to rejoining UNESCO.
They would raise more money if those so called stars were in a dunking booth with a tub of chicken crap underneath and the highest bidder could make them fall in it.
Apparently from the reports of those watching it happened right from the beginning and has been a continued theme since then.
800-258-6000. Who knows maybe Bruce Willis or Oprah will answer.
