Oprah And Dwayne Johnson Were Criticised For Collecting Fund

Oprah and DwayneThe RockJohnson asked their fans to donate money to help the people affected by a big wildlife event in Maui, Hawaii

They gave $10 million to start a fund called The People’s Fund of Maui

However, some people got upset because Oprah and The Rock were wealthy, having more than $2.8 billion

People wondered why they needed public donations when they had so much money.

The Rock hasn’t said anything about the criticism, but Oprah mentioned that they got money from about 10,000 people but didn’t say how much. 

There were also rumors that Oprah, who owns a lot of land in Hawaii, might have had something to do with the wildfire to make her land more valuable. 

But there’s no evidence to support these claims. 

The idea behind The People’s Fund of Maui was that eligible adults in Maui would get monthly money to help them recover from the wildfire.  

This whole situation brings up a more significant debate about whether rich people should ask the public for money to help with charitable causes and what it means when they do.
