Texas has a friend in Matthew McConaughey. Early Monday morning the actor announced he and wife Camila will stage a virtual benefit to aid those in his home state affected by the recent deadly winter storms.
“As most of you know, my home state of Texas was just hit with the worst winter storm it’s had in the last 70 years. It left a whole lot of people without power, without water, and without a whole lot of basic necessities,” McConaughey said in a video released onto social media.

“And while most of the power is thankfully being restored, the busted water lines from hospitals to so many homes has left so many Texans without the bare necessities they need to survive.”
The Academy Award-winner asked fans to “stay tuned,” explaining the virtual benefit will evolve in coming weeks.
