According to the press release, both organizations are on the ground in the Bahamas to help victims of the hurricane.
Blank isn’t the only big-name Atlantan to pledge support for victims of Hurricane Dorian.
On Wednesday, Atlanta rapper, actor, restaurateur and philanthropist Chris “Ludacris” Bridges announced he will donate $100,000 from his annual Labor Day weekend event, LudaDay, to hurricane relief.
And Atlanta entertainment mogul Tyler Perry, an "adoptive son" of the Bahamas, promised Wednesday to help, Jennifer Brett reported.
In a social media post, Perry pledged that “as soon as I can, I will be there to do whatever I can to help you rebuild stronger and better.”
He wasn't kidding. On Thursday, TMZ reported, Perry used his private seaplane to make two deliveries to the islands. Among the supplies were "much-needed water, juice, sleeping bags, diapers, various hygiene products and a lot of other basic necessities," TMZ reported.
During the return trips, they brought back seven passengers, including small children, a pregnant woman and others who needed medical attention.
