Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers is donating $1 million to help assisted people impacted by the California wildfires. 

Aaron Rodgers’ hometown, Chico, California is among the communities devastated by the recent fires. On Wednesday, Aaron announced #RETWEET4GOOD on his twitter account.

Rodgers' major donation will support the victims of the Camp Fire in Butte County and focus on children school programs, before and after school, youth and high school sports and help build temporary housing for the displaced Paradise residents. 

The Camp Fire in Butte County has been declared the most devastating and deadliest wildfire in California history.

In addition, for Twitter users, State Farm and Neighborhood of Good has promised to donate $1 for every retweet, up to $1 million dollars, of Rodgers' video. 

All users have to do is retweet his video using the hashtag #retweet4good. Users have until Sunday, November 25 at midnight to share the video.
