Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson and Oprah Winfrey are stepping up to help those affected by the recent wildfires in Maui … launching a $10 million fund to financially support thousands of residents.
Johnson and Winfrey announced the initiative Thursday morning … saying after brainstorming a bit on how they could offer assistance, they decided to kick-start the People’s Fund of Maui.
The initiative is designed to put money directly in the pockets of those impacted by the devastating fires in Lahaina and Kula, which includes the many who lost their homes and were forced to evacuate.
Johnson says people can apply to receive $1,200 a month as they recover … and he’s hoping more donations pour in overtime to add to their own massive contribution.
“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,” Johnson said. “We thank you in advance for your contribution. “
Oprah — a part-time resident in Maui — has also been doing her part by visiting evacuation shelters and handing out supplies over the past few weeks.
