After ripping through the Caribbean and killing more than 800 people in Haiti, Hurricane Matthew is pummeling Florida’s coastline on its way up to Georgia, South Carolina, and North Carolina. As Haiti begins a massive recovery process and the United States braces for the worst from this Category 4 hurricane, celebrities are sending prayers and help to the victims.

“Thinking of my beloved Haiti today as this mother of a hurricane hits land. Help if you can,” Olivia Wilde wrote earlier this week as the storm made landfall. “My heart absolutely breaks for Haiti,” Rihanna wrote. “Prayers up for my brothers and sisters who’ve fallen victim to this tragic event!”

Meanwhile, stars like Pink and Heidi Klum pointed fans toward UNICEF, asking those who can to donate to the organization, which is providing lifesaving help to those in need. “In 2012, I visited the kids of Haiti w/ @UNICEFUSA. They need your help now. PLEASE Support #HurricaneMatthew relief,” Klum wrote.
