John Cena Donates $500,000 to California Fire First Responders
Playing With Fire star John Cena has just made an incredibly generous donation to the Los Angeles Fire Department Foundation and the California Fire Foundation in the amount of $500,000. Initially, John Cena asked in video he shared on Twitter for Paramount Pictures to pick a charity related to first responders, and he would donate $500,000.
Cena made the donation offer in celebration of First Responder’s Day (Oct. 28). After Paramount picked the aforementioned two organizations, Cena responded, “Two incredible choices. @LAFDFoundation and @CAFireFound … on behalf of Paramount and the cast of #PlayingWithFireMovie, a total of $500K is coming your way. Thank you for what you do. Help is on the way!!!”
Cena portrays a firefighter in the upcoming film, Playing With Fire, which arrives in theaters on Nov. 8.
