As many of their friends lose their houses to the California wildfires, stars including Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth, Sandra Bullock, Lady Gaga, Khloe Kardashian and Guy Fieri are doing their part to help.
USA Today reports:
Cyrus and Hemsworth, who lost their Malibu home, said they would contribute $500,000 by way of the “Younger Now” singer’s charity, The Happy Hippie Foundation, to The Malibu Foundation.
A rep for Cyrus told AP the pair “want to give back to the place that has created so many beautiful memories for themselves and others.”
Bullock donated $100,000 to the Humane Society of Ventura County to help care for animals evacuated from the fires, with the organization thanking the actress in a press release.
“The Humane Society of Ventura County was deeply humbled today by a $100,000 donation from Sandra Bullock and family,” the note published on Sunday reads. “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 … This donation will help the HSVC provide 24/7 care for the scores of horses, bulls, donkeys, pigs, chickens, ducks, dogs, cats and other pets evacuated from the fires.”
USA TODAY has reached out to Bullock’s rep for comment.
Meanwhile, celebrity chef Guy Fieri donated his time and talents to serve meals to law enforcement officers at a staging area in Butte County, Calif. for officials battling the Camp Fire.
The Twitter account for the Butte County Sheriff’s Office shared photos of Fieri serving dinner alongside volunteers and posing with people on-site.
“Guy Fieri made a surprise visit to serve dinner to everyone at the law enforcement staging area at Butte College,” the tweet reads. “Thank you so much Guy for filling our bellies and lifting our spirits.”
Lady Gaga, who had to evacuate from her Malibu home, visited a Red Cross shelter at the Pacific Palisades High School on Sunday to hand out gift cards to other evacuees, posing for photos with fans and sharing inspirational words with the crowd.
“I extend my love … I know we do not know each other, but I love you,” she said, per TMZ. “This is an emergency, but you are not alone.”
Rob Lowe’s family members volunteered on the ground to help fire relief efforts, with Lowe sharing a photo of his older son, 25-year-old Matthew, and his nephews Jacob and Lucas Steagall in action.
“My son and nephews helping evacuations and bringing food to the firefighters somewhere in the hills above Thousand Oaks,” he captioned the shot.
Khloe Kardashian did her part to help firefighters in need by visiting a CVS Saturday and buying bottled water and other supplies to donate.
“Here at CVS, I basically got everything they had in stock. I got as many waters as I could, but they still have waters here, but if you guys can drop off whatever you can,” Kardashian told her followers on her Instagram Stories, filming herself wearing a white fire mask, per E! and Entertainment Tonight. “I know the brave men and women are working so hard, tirelessly, for all of us would greatly appreciate it. Just do whatever you can, even if it’s one bottle of water, one container of eye drops, one granola bar, anything, I know they would appreciate it.”
Kardashian also shared a list of supplies to donate to fire departments, including face wipes, eye drops, energy drinks and more.
The Kardashian matriarch, Kris Jenner, praised Khloe’s actions on Instagram, writing, “Let’s take care of our guys! Thank you to all of the men and women fighting these fires and risking their lives.”
