Transcript for Generous people answer the call for help on this Day of Giving
Finally tonight, so many in need. So many answering the call to help. Reporter: The day of giving kicking off this morning on "Gma" with an all-star cast of volunteers manning the phones. We are right here at command central. We are calling it for our big day of giving. Reporter: ABC stations around the country taking part as well. We are helping Houston in our day of giving. Reporter: And today's spirit of giving is contagious. Children in communities coast to coast pitching in. In Tallahassee, Florida, Ali, Landon, and Brayden Whitaker made messages of hope. We have raised over $1,000, and I just hope that this will help them. Reporter: This New York City family sold baked goods. They raised over $500 and sold out in a few hours. $2 for a pastry! How about I just give you a donation? Get your lemonade here. Reporter: Outside Portland, Maine, Adria Byther and Abby Bartlett set up a lemonade stand. People were injured. All the homes were flooded and it was just really sad, so we kind of wanted to make a difference. Okay. Would you like your change back? No thanks. Okay. Here you go. Have a nice day. It's great to see people actually, like, really caring about this subject as much as me, and and Adria. A day of giving. A day of hope. And there still is time to help on this day of giving. Text the word, Harvey, to 90999 to contribute $10 to the red cross or visit to help. Thank you so much for giving and thank you so much for watching. I'm Tom llamas. We want to leave you with this image tonight as Houston rises up from the flood waters. I hope to see you right back here tomorrow.
