Tina Knowles-Lawson's Mission To Help Hurricane Victims

Playing Houston Native Tina Knowles-Lawson Gives Back

Following the devastation of Hurricane Harvey, which dumped 20 trillion gallons of water on the Houston Area, many of it's most famous residents stepped up to help out those in need.

Beyonce and her mom Tina Knowles-Lawson with her husband Richard gave back to the area in a huge way and Tina took us along to share more about the amazing work she's done to help the victims. Tina and her family hail from Houston and have worked for years with St. John's Church to help the community. She worked with the church once again to help hurricane victims. Tina and her husband began collecting goods as soon as the hurricane hit and arranged for the much-need supplies to be transported from Los Angeles to Houston. Their efforts provided cleaning supplies, medical supplies, and pet care products.

Tina and Richard join The Doctors to share why giving back was so important to them. "It's my home," Tina says. "It's where my kids grew up. [There] are so many great people there... it was just devastating to see the suffering."

Richard encourages people with means to help out those without in any way possible.

"People feel disempowered because it is like, 'What can I do?' Well, listen, do something. Do whatever you can do," he says. "It takes one person to start a movement."
