HOUSTON – Everyone loves birthday and graduation shoutouts.
A new online service, Cameo, allows people to request personalized videos from their favorite celebrities, which include many Houston-area athletes. Fans can purchase a video shoutout for a fee, which ranges for each person.
Here are the local sports stars on Cameo:
Many of the Texans players and personnel are on Cameo for charity, including Toro, who costs a $100 donation to the Texans Foundation.
