Five living former US presidents have come together to create the "One America Appeal" to raise money for hurricane recovery after Harvey and Irma.

The hurricane recovery effort was announced by Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, George H.W. Bush and Jimmy Carter.

Presidents, both current and former, have a history of banding together to raise relief funds.

Bush Sr. and Clinton raised money for victims of the tsunami in Asia in 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. 

After Haiti's massive earthquake in 2010, Obama asked Clinton and George W. to lead a relief effort.

Organizers say a special restricted account has been created through the George H.W. Bush Presidential Library Foundation to collect and distribute donations.

Officials say "100 cents out of every dollar" donated will help hurricane victims and all donations will be considered tax-deductible.
