5 Former Living Presidents Pal Around, Define #SquadGoals and Raise $31 Million for Hurricane Relief Efforts
Only a few time spans in United States history have produced five former living US Presidents. And even fewer times have brought those men together to put their differences aside and be cordial for the greater good of the American people.
We are living in one of those times. (The last time was in 2013 at the dedication of President George W. Bush's library in Dallas.)
Most recently, Presidents Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter came together for a benefit concert to aid victims of Hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria. The concert, Deep From the Heart: The One America Appeal. awas held at Texas A&M University, which is also where H.W. Bush's library is located. Since the group launched the initiative on September 7, over $31 million from more than 80,000 donors has been raised. Funds from the campaign will be distributed into various charity and relief organizations throughout Texas, Florida, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Presidents H.W. Bush and Clinton have been teaming up in regards to disaster aid since Hurricane Katrina in 2005.
