The Bet­ter Call Saul ac­tor, 56, helps raise funds for those who suf­fered as a re­sult of the re­cent Cal­i­for­nia wild­fires

People (USA) - - SCOOP - By Jes­sica Fecteau For more in­for­ma­tion, go to vis­it­cal­i­for­ —RE­PORTED BY KARA WARNER

Some­one I know lost ev­ery­thing in the wild­fires that broke out in Novem­ber—a home they lived in for 30 years—and they are ab­so­lutely dev­as­tated. So many peo­ple were deeply af­fected. It re­minds us all that what mat­ters is not what’s in the fire, it’s your re­la­tion­ships. I did a com­edy ben­e­fit for low-in­come fam­i­lies who lost their homes and be­long­ings. Visit Cal­i­for­nia part­nered with the Amer­i­can Red Cross to de­velop the pub­lic ser­vice an­nounce­ment “Power of Love,” which I also par­tic­i­pated in, that calls on the pub­lic to help sup­port restora­tion fol­low­ing the wild­fires. I was happy to be able to help in any way I could. Peo­ple with a lot of money tend to have in­sur­ance that’s go­ing to try to com­pen­sate them. But do­nat­ing money to the Red Cross will help peo­ple who don’t have that level of sup­port. Money won’t re­place peo­ple’s mem­o­ries, but a do­na­tion is a way to ac­knowl­edge your friends in

L.A. and to try to help shoul­der their bur­den a lit­tle.
