In an Instagram video on Sunday, August 13, Johnson expressed his heartbreak and empathy for the devastation caused by the wildfires in Hawaii. He shared his connection to the relief efforts, stating that he is in contact with organizations like The Hawaii Community Foundation to determine the most effective ways to provide assistance. Johnson, who has Samoan heritage and spent part of his childhood in Hawaii, emphasized the strength and resilience of the community in facing this tragedy.
The wildfires have inflicted significant damage, with a death toll of 93 people and widespread destruction. Johnson’s message resonates with other celebrities who are also urging support for the affected communities. “Moana” actress Auli’i Cravalho has encouraged donations and prayers, emphasizing the urgent need for aid and discouraging unnecessary travel to the region.

As the fires continue to cause destruction, these efforts from individuals with strong ties to the region highlight the importance of community support and solidarity in times of crisis.
