All five living former presidents have teamed up to help victims of Hurricane Harvey.
In a video message, former Presidents Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Jimmy Carter, George W. Bush and George H. W. Bush said they want to help Americans impacted by the storm, so they launched a campaign — the One America Appeal.

"Hurricane Harvey brought terrible destruction, but it also brought out the best in humanity," Clinton begins in the ad.
"As former presidents, we wanted to help our fellow Americans begin to recover," Obama added.
Carter said, "Our friends in Texas, including presidents Bush 41 and 43, are doing just that.”
The younger Bush said, "people are hurting down here.”
“But as one Texan put it, we've got more love in Texas than water," he continued.
The ad then features the elder Bush, who said, "We love you Texas."
The One America Appeal’s website pledges that “every cent donated through the One America Appeal will help the victims recover. “
President Donald Trump took to Twitter to offer his support to his predecessors' campaign:
We will confront ANY challenge, no matter how strong the winds or high the water. I’m proud to stand with Presidents for #OneAmericaAppeal.— Donald J. Trump (@Donald J. Trump) 1504834418.0
