A lot of celebs have been pitching in to help victims of Hurricane Harvey, including Kevin Hart, the Rock and Houston native Beyoncé. But one particular A-lister donated a seriously significant amount—a staggering $1 million—to aid relief efforts, and it turns out that she’s been quietly helping those affected by disaster for years.

According to a press release from the Red Cross, Sandra Bullock is a longtime supporter of the organization and made her donation on Monday.

Previously, the actress has donated an additional $1 million to the humanitarian organization after Hurricane Katrina. But that’s not all. According to E! News, Bullock has also given $1 million to 9/11 relief efforts, $1 million to Doctors Without Borders after the Haiti earthquake in 2010 and another $1 million to help victims of the 2004 tsunami in Indonesia.

In reference to her Hurricane Harvey donation, People magazine reports that Bullock released a brief statement expressing her hope that we can rise above political differences and join together to help people in their time of need. “There are no politics in eight feet of water,” she says. “There are human beings in eight feet of water.”

As if we couldn’t love the Oscar winner any more than we already do.
