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