As California fires continue to rage, forcing hundreds of thousands of people to flee and killing at least 31 people (with hundreds more missing), Sandra Bullock has stepped up to donate $100,000 to the Humane Society of Ventura County. Her donation will reportedly help provide care for animals evacuated because of the fires.
The Humane Society thanked her on Facebook, writing: "The Humane Society of Ventura County was deeply humbled today by a $100,000 donation from Sandra Bullock and family. Our efforts for rescuing and caring for evacuated animals from the Hill and Woolsey fires had caught her attention and her team reached out to the shelter to show their support."
KIM KARDASHIAN HIRES FIREFIGHTERS
Kim Kardashian and Kanye West took an under-the-radar step and hired private firefighters to protect their home and neighborhood. The fire was threatening their property as of Friday, but the team of firefighters they hired doused the flames, saving their home and others in the neighborhood.
Several celebrities have lost their homes to fire, including Miley Cyrus and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth, Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke, Orlando Bloom and Neil Young. Still more have used their spotlight, both from the stage at the People’s Choice Awards on Sunday, and on social media, to urge people to donate to relief organizations and express their deep condolences to those who have lost their homes and loved ones to the flames.
The KarJenner sisters, Lady Gaga, Bella Hadid, Katy Perry, Alyssa Milano are just a few of the bold-faced names standing by victims of the fires.
