Former presidents join forces for hurricane relief

America's five living former presidents issued a video appeal Thursday for donations to help in the recoveries from hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

From the One America Appeal website: "The former Presidents were inspired to come together in the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, which unleashed devastating flooding — and spurred thousands of first responders and neighbors into action."

Worth noting: One living U.S. president is notably absent from the video, which was focused on the need for Americans to come together as one. It's unclear whether President Trump was invited to participate.
