Kanye West does good for Carlifornia fire victims with Ksh50M donation

Kanye West will reportedly donate $500,000 towards the California wildfire relief.

The 41-year-old rapper is said to have gone to Adidas and his own Yeezy brand to raise funds to support people who have battled the devastating blaze.

As reported by TMZ, the star’s wife Kim Kardashian West will appear on Wednesday’s episode (21.11.18) of Ellen DeGeneres’ show, and a member of the audience has revealed details of Kanye’s generosity.

The source said the superstar couple has had a serious discussion about easing the burden of firefighters, and Kim revealed her man came up with a plan. The insider noted that during filming for the episode, the reality TV star presented $200,000 cheques to both the California Community Foundation’s Wildfire Relief Fund and the California Fire Foundation. It’s said she also gave $100,000 to firefighter Michael Williams and his wife after he lost his own home but continued to save those of his neighbors.

Sportwear brand Adidas also took to Instagram to share their plans to donate some proceeds from the Yeezy collection.

The news comes days after Kanye revealed he has plans to build a fire-proof community.

And Kim’s mum Kris Jenner recently urged her fans to donate to the California Fire Foundations to help those who have been battling the fire. In a series of tweets, she wrote:

Kris then asked her followers to show their support for the foundation, which she has already donated to.

She said: “Please pray for those affected by the fires and to those who are fighting to keep everyone safe! Join me in donating to the CA Fire Foundation to help the firefighters who are working to rescue people and battle the fires. Donate today to @CAFireFound at ”
