The Thunder announced Tuesday that they'll give $1 million to the American Red Cross, the Salvation Army and other disaster relief organizations helping after Monday's disaster in suburban Oklahoma City. Earlier in the day, Durant pledged $1 million to the Red Cross from his Durant Family Foundation intended to match other donations and be an incentive for more people to give.

Red Cross' regional CEO Janienne Bella said the organization was thankful for Durant's ``generosity.''

The Red Cross is accepting $10 pledges from people who text ``REDCROSS'' to 90999. People can also donate at the organization's website.

On Monday, Durant sent a message to his 4.1 million Twitter followers with Red Cross donation information.
