A campaign launched by all five of the former living United States presidents has added Hurricane Irma to its fundraising for disaster relief.

The "One America Appeal" campaign will now also contribute funds to the Florida Disaster Fund in addition to relief for Hurricane Harvey, The Hill reported.

The campaign also includes another public service announcement – the original PSA focused on Harvey – that will air Sunday and Monday during National Football League telecasts, The Hill reported.

"Recently, our country has witnessed catastrophic devastation – hurricanes and flooding have upended lives and livelihoods," former President Barack Obama says in the new ad.

The "One America Appeal" campaign is a joint effort that includes former presidents Jimmy Carter, George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Obama.

President Donald Trump also tweeted support for the campaign.

"One hundred percent of funds donated to the Florida Disaster Fund will go toward disaster-related response and recovery because the fund has no overhead costs," the campaign vowed, The Hill reported.
