As wildfires continue to ravage through California, Kanye West and Adidas are doing their part to help out.
Adidas announced yesterday that all proceeds from the Yeezy Calabasas track pant would go toward the California Community Foundation’s Wildlife Relief Fund and the CA Fire Foundation.
The track pants, which retail for $120, went live on Adidas’ website today. The California Community Foundation provides a variety of services to victims of wildfire relief, such as rebuilding homes and providing follow-up medical care and supplies. The CA Fire Foundation focuses on giving emotional and financial assistance to the loved ones of fallen firefighters.
For West, the wildfires are a personal cause. His family was forced to evacuate from their Calabasas, Calif. home during the Woolsey fire.
The rapper had previously tweeted his support for the first responders and firefighters working to keep the flames under control.
“In light of these situations, I am so inspired by the firefighters and first responders who are risking their lives to do whatever they can to help. They are our true heroes,” West wrote on Nov. 10. “We must all come together during these difficult times to support each other.”
Wildfires continue to wreak havoc across the northern portion of California, with more than 1,000 individuals still unaccounted for. The death toll had risen to 71 as of Friday, with nearly 150,000 acres of land destroyed.
