HOUSTON --Ready to pick up the phone for a little 1-800 telethon relief?
Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner joined Muslim leaders on Sunday for a live telethon event, with the goal to raise money for Hurricane Harvey victims.
The telethon is broadcast across the country with an initial goal of raising $250,000 for relief efforts.
While sitting front and center on the live panel, "America's Mayor" stunned everyone with a surprise donation of his own.
"Whatever the Muslim community raises, I will match that, dollar for dollar," said Mayor Turner.
Funds raised from the telethon will be for all Houstonians in need, with a special focus on senior citizens and people with special needs.
Way to stay Houston Strong!
