The Southern California wildfires have been dominating the news cycle and a number of people have been forced to leave their homes as a result. The Woolsey Fire has led to many evacuations in Malibu and these fires do not care how much money you have. Fires will still destroy a home and all of your worldly possessions. Even the celebrities that reside in Malibu are not immune to this reality.
Gerard Butler, Robin Thicke and various other celebrities have lost their homes to the fires. They realize that they are blessed to have the opportunity to replace their tangible goods, though. There is no pouting taking place. Instead, celebrities are banding together to share their good fortune with others who may not be as fortunate (or able to replace their homes).
Lady Gaga is one of the celebrities who is looking out for her fellow man. She shared her visit to a shelter on Instagram Live and urged her followers to help out in any way possible. Gaga decided that she would bring pizza to the shelter. She carried in 11 boxes of pizza, brought coffee and gift cards to those in need.
She also gave credit to the Red Cross for being willing to step in to help. They are providing a bevy of important services to California residents who have been displaced by the wildfires. Lady Gaga also went to visit evacuees at Pacific Palisades High School. She let the crowd know that she understood their plight and told them that she loved them.
At times like these, even the smallest gestures can mean the world to someone who has experienced a major trauma. It can often feel as if celebrities are totally disconnected from the realities that the rest of us have to face. She is not the only celebrity who is trying to help others through this tragedy. Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus will be donating half a million dollars to the relief efforts.
Khloe Kardashian is donating water and food to the firefighters who are battling the blazes. We are glad to see that these celebrities are not sitting idly by while the rest of the world suffers. They are not immune to the problems that the rest of us face and they are doing everything in their power to assist their neighbors during this trying time.
