Jordan prefaces his message by encouraging to still donate to the cause. "PLEASE DONATE, SPREAD AWARENESS & SEND LOVE," the tweet reads.

Aaron Rodgers is the latest celebrity to donate to the relief efforts of the devastating California wildfires. The Chico, California native is pledging $1 million to aid in recovery and rebuilding of local communities affected by the tragedy.
The Green Bay Packer quarterback took to Twitter this morning to officially announce his contribution with the North Valley Community Foundation.
Along with Rodgers' personal donation, the superstar quarterback is also joining forces with long-time partner State Farm and its Neighborhood of Good initiative to contribute even more money to aid the Camp Fire in Butte County. For every retweet of the tweet above using the hashtag #Retweet4Good, State Farm will donate $1, up to $1 million, to the relief efforts.
