Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers announced he’s donating $1 million to help those in his home state of California who have been impacted by the wildfires.
On November 11, Rodgers wore a Santa Monica Fire Department hat in a post game interview to show support for those impacted by the California fires.
In a video shared to his Instagram & Twitter accounts Rodgers says: “In Northern California, where I was born and raised, the city of Paradise burned to the ground, and many of the residents who got out are now displaced to my hometown of Chico and across the north state, I personally reached out to my friends and the mayor of Chico to find out how to be of the most help. And raising money for both immediate needs and the long-term recovery is what is needed most right now.”
Rodgers long-time corporate partners, State Farm, will donate $1 for every retweet of his post (up to $1 million) through Sunday using the hashtag #retweet4good.
