Champion golfer Tiger Woods teamed up with singer Justin Timberlake to donate at least $6 million toward Bahamian hurricane relief in the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian. 

Woods and Timberlake established the One Bahamas Fund and are matching dollar for dollar the next $6 million raised, the celebrities tweeted Thursday. 

“Help us turn this first $6 million into $12 million, and join our efforts to restore and rebuild The Bahamas,” Woods tweeted.

Timberlake urged his followers to repost his tweet and donate if they can.

NEXUS Luxury Collection, Royal Bank of Canada and Albany, a luxury resort in the Bahamas, are also part of the fundraising effort.

The One Bahamas Fund will update its fundraising tracker daily at 5 p.m. Eastern time, according to the fund's website. It says $6 million had been raised by Thursday before 5 p.m.

Hurricane Dorian, the strongest storm to ever hit the Bahamas, devastated the island nation. It killed, injured and displaced Bahamians. 

The death toll from the storm is at least 50, according to multiple reports. 

Former NBA star Michael Jordan announced earlier this week he is donating $1 million in aid for the hurricane’s relief efforts.
