An incredible role model like Aaron Rodgers is just what the state of California can use right now. Sometimes seeing someone that you know and admire like Rodgers is what it takes for people to take action when they are on the fence about contributing/donating.
The Packers signal-caller has made his opinions known in the past regarding humanitarian driven matters. Rodgers has over four million followers on Twitter, and with all the retweets and likes the video is bound to reach even more people. His goal seems to be quite attainable and it’s great to see an individual like Rodgers try to give back in such an effective way.
This tragedy hits hard for Rodgers and clearly he realizes he can make a difference for his home state. Rodgers made this announcement on Wednesday and it is safe to assume California can use all of the help they can get.
There’s no better time to give and recognize those in more need than with Thanksgiving right around the corner. Those affected by the wildfires could use any help possible and this video from Rodgers will likely prompt other individuals to do the same and raise awareness. Those not living in California may not be fully aware of how devastating the situation is, and thankfully with Rodgers helping, things could change for the better.
