Death and destruction tolls caused by the Camp Fire in Paradise, Chico and surrounding Northern California communities continue to climb. Along with that comes greater need for relief for those affected.
Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers, who was born and raised in Chico, tweeted a video to his 4.4 million followers Wednesday announcing he was donating $1 million to relief efforts and sharing how others could help.
Please take a minute to watch this and if you can, take a few seconds to retweet this using the #retweet4good
All the money goes to a great organization for the immediate needs and the recovery efforts for the #CampFireParadise

That's when Rodgers' young brother, Jordan, tried to drag the family's well-chronicles issues into the situation.
PLEASE DONATE, SPREAD AWARENESS & SEND LOVE.
But when your own Mom is home alone during the fires, car packed ready to evacuate, & you miss the fundamental first step of compassion; calling your parents to make sure they are safe....
Everything else just feels like an act. https://t.co/glzDfqwsKz— Jordan Rodgers (@JRodgers11) November 21, 2018
Jordan's tweet went viral, and hopefully that means more people saw Aaron's original video and did something to help.
Because that was a bad tweet when we just need good right now.
If you want to follow Aaron's lead, simply retweet his video with the hashtag #Retweet4Good, and State Farm Insurance will donate $1, up to $1 million total. That's just one of many ways you can help, and here's how else:
