Tropical Depression Harvey, which was, at the time of landfall, a Category 4 hurricane, has caused catastrophic damage along Texas' coastline. Property damage is in the range of $30 billion. And America has stepped up: Since the storm hit, countless numbers of civilians and celebrities have donated food and funds to the aid its victims.

Still, the NFL's J.J. Watt, defensive end for the Houston Texans, stands out.

Watt's online fundraising campaign, organized through YouCaring, had an initial goal of $200,000, and he pledged $100,000 of his own money. Support poured in.

By Aug. 29, he had set the new goal at $1 million. By Aug. 30, it went up to $6 million. Now he has collected more than $10 million.

Watt's fundraising has garnered a lot of attention, and gratitude, in Texas and across the country. Here are some other celebrities that have pitched in, too:
