Tyler Perry Donates $1million To Harvey Relief Fund And Some To Joel Osteen's Curch

Tyler Perry is the latest celebrity to donate to Hurricane Harvey relief efforts.
The writer, actor and director posted a video to his Facebook page Thursday in which he announced he plans to give $1 million to help those in need in Houston.




He also used the video to defend pastor Joel Osteen who has come under fire for not opening up his megachurch sooner to those in need of shelter.

And to show his support for Osteen, he said he's giving $250,000 of the one million to the Lakewood evangelist.
'Let me tell you something - Joel and Victoria are amazing people,' Perry said. 'There's no way they would lock people out of their church and not let people in for shelter.
He repeated Osteen's claim of 'safety concerns' and said when he spoke with the pastor on the phone 'it all made perfect sense to me'

I'm so happy he's not joining the bandwagon of those cussing the man

Things are planned and carefully thought of
You don't just expect the man to open the doors of his mega church wide without making sure things are well put in place.

Glad the church is open now so people can take refuge there.
My prayers are with those that are displaced.

People don't wait before they start judging, Joel and his wife so charity works and don't announce it, they can't be that cruel

Stella I was wondering if you wont bring this Joel Austin's matter here. They are really hard on him this time. I think he was misunderstood

Na wa o, all the mosques and other churches around his area that opened up their places of worship for people to shelter in, I guess they had months of planning and preparations for safety to allow people in.

It was an emergency, and in such instances what people need is shelter! A place constantly holding 1700+ persons, that even held such crowd less than a week before doesn't need budget planning process to take in people.

So he was bashed Sunday & Monday, and announced doors would be open on Tuesday by Monday afternoon, which planning was he able to achieve within those 2 days that he wasn't possible in the 3 days prior? I understand the need to defend our faith, but sometimes, it only shows our hypocrisy. God is not mocked.
