The Rock teamed up with Oprah for a great cause.
Winfrey is a long-time resident of Maui. Johnson lived in Hawaii for part of his childhood. Winfrey and Johnson started with an initial contribution of $10 million. They are calling on the public to contribute to grow the fund. Every adult resident from the affected area in Lahaina and Kula is eligible to receive $1200 per month while they recover.
“We’re honored to announce the People’s Fund of Maui, a fund putting money directly in the pockets of those who were affected by the recent wildfires,” The Rock wrote on Twitter. “As @Oprah and I have seen firsthand, the impacts of these wildfires have been devastating, and we’re here to ensure with 100% guarantee that your donations will go directly into the hands of Lahaina residents. Every adult resident who lives in the affected area and was displaced by the wildfires in Lahaina and Kula is eligible to receive $1200 per month to help them through this period of recovery. All you have to do is go to http://PeoplesFundofMaui.org to apply. We are honored to start this campaign with $10 million dollars and ask for your help in donating to those who have lost their homes. We thank you in advance for your contribution.”
