Tyler Perry Promises to Bring Aid to the Bahamas

American actor, playwright, filmmaker, and comedian, Tyler Perry is one of many who is not letting Hurricane Dorian blow by without a fight.

The damage the storm has left behind has been quite monstrous. So far, a count of seven lives have been taken. With all the overwhelming updates going on in the news, Tyler decided to take it upon himself to promise to do what he can as soon as possible.

The 49-year-old media mogul shared this post on Instagram and Facebook:

The vow of "rebuilding" carries a lot of weight since Red Cross spokesman Matthew Cochrane announced that more than 13,000 houses in Abaco and Grand Bahama have been destroyed and over 60,000 people are in need of food and clean drinking water.

Red Cross has since authorized $500,000 for disaster relief. Meanwhile, the U.S. has sent a government response team to aid
