When it came to helping victims of Harvey, Texas native Edie Brickell and her husband Paul Simon decided to focus on the needs of those outside Houston, where most media attention has been driven since the storm. The couple announced this week they plan to donate $1 million to Harvey relief in areas outside the city.

"People who feel forgotten, you know, in small towns. Out in the country, they lose everything," Edie told CBS News. "Who's gonna help them?" Others who have pledged to help Harvey recovery efforts include Beyonce, Kevin Hart, Sandra Bullock and J.J. Watt, whose Harvey fund hit $20 million this week.
