Kanye West Donates $500,000 To California Wildfire Victims
Kanye West has donated at least half a million dollars to different organizations and one family, seeking to aid victims of California wildfires. According to the rapper’s wife Kim Kardashian-West, Kanye earned the money after reaching out to Adidas and his Yeezy brand, which helped him raise the $500,000.
Kim will be giving two $200,000 checks to the California Fire Foundation and California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund on the “Ellen Show,” while also presenting a $100,000 check to a firefighter named Michael Williams. Williams and his wife lost their home due to the wildfires, but continued to battle fires and attempted to save other citizen’s homes.
Amidst the wildfires, the Kardashian-West family also helped their surrounding neighbors by hiring a private firefighting team to abate flames from reaching their Hidden Hills mansion.
