HOUSTON – Actor Kevin Hart gave a $100,000 donation to Child Advocates of Houston, the group told KPRC 2 on Tuesday.

Hart recently donated to local organizations from coast-to-coast, dialing into “holiday parties” organized by Sam’s Club to surprise kids and families. In addition to the monetary contribution, select families and children benefitting from the organizations were also surprised to have a unique holiday wish – from laptops to karaoke machines to dollhouses – all fulfilled by Hart, Laugh Out Loud -- Hart’s production company -- and Sam’s Club.

Hart and the groups donated more than $500,000 to five organizations from LA to Orlando.

Here are photos from the Houston surprise announcement.
