ABC part of multi-network telethon 'Hand in Hand' to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey

The event will take place on Sept. 12 on ABC and other networks.

— -- ABC will be part of a special, multi-network telethon to benefit those affected by Hurricane Harvey, "Good Morning America" announced Tuesday morning. It will be called "Hand in Hand: A Benefit for Hurricane Harvey Relief."

With thousands of people in Texas displaced and countless others losing their homes because of the massive storm and continued flooding, the telethon will aim to raise funds for those in need.

Some of the names attached include Jamie Foxx, George Clooney, Beyonce and Oprah Winfrey. The benefit will take place next Tuesday on ABC, CBS, Fox, CMT and NBC and stream live on Facebook from 8 p.m. to 9 p.m. ET. The one-hour broadcast will then air in each time zone during that slot.

"My heart goes out, my prayers go out," Foxx said. "Sept. 12, we have a telethon that we're doing. We'll give you more details [when we have them], where we can raise as much money as we can for everybody down there."

Others, like football star J.J. Watt, have started fundraisers as well. Watt said he has raised more than $15 million for Harvey survivors.
