“In Northern California, where I was born and raised, the city of Paradise burned to the ground, and many of the residents that got out are now displaced in my hometown of Chico and across the north state,” he said.
All the proceeds will go to the victims of the Camp Fire, which has devastated Northern California. It’s considered the deadliest fire in California history, killing dozens and burning thousands of homes.
