Justin Bieber wants those affected by the devastating and deadly California wildfires to know that he's here to help
The 23-year-old “Sorry” singer shared a heartfelt video on Instagram, Friday, where he pledged his support to those in need.
“I’m going to have a conversation with some people and we are going to get moving on a solution,” Bieber said in the video. “Obviously I’m not a fireman but I can use my resources to figure out ways to get some sort of restoration in certain communities.”
He continued, “Fundraisers or whatever we can do. I’m going to get on that and in the meantime all the families and everyone who are struggling, just know that everything is going to be okay. ”
He followed up his message with a post letting his followers know where they could donate supplies to those impacted — including new and used clothes, blankets, pillows, sheets, feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, baby formula, board games, toys, food items, water, and more.
Since Monday, more than 141,000 acres have burned in the raging wildfires across multiple counties, ABC News reported, and L.A.’s notoriously traffic-dense freeways have either been shut down or clogged with cars as residents evacuate. As of Friday, almost 8,700 firefighters were still fighting the flames, the outlet reported.
On Wednesday morning, firefighters were faced with a new blaze in Bel Air, a wealthy neighborhood famous for being home to many celebrities. As of now, the homes of Jennifer Aniston, Elon Musk, Beyoncé and JAY-Z are under threat of being affected by the fires. Reese Witherspoon, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jennifer Garner and Harrison Ford have homes that may also be in danger if the flames spread.
