Matthew McConaughey and Son Levi Launch Fundraiser for Maui Wildfire Victims

Baby2Baby is dedicated to providing families with essentials like baby formula and diapers in the immediate aftermath of tragedies worldwide.

Matthew McConaughey and his son, Levi, are doing their part to provide aid after the devastating Maui wildfires — the costliest wildfires America has seen in over a hundred years — and tragically, the death toll is rising every day.

Getting resources to displaced families is crucial. Families with children on the island are currently expressing urgent needs for essential items such as diapers, wipes, hygiene products, formula, baby food, and clean water. In response to this, Matthew McConaughey and his son Levi made a rare joint appearance on Instagram on August 15. Their purpose was to announce their endorsement of Baby2Baby's Disaster Relief & Emergency Response initiative, which has a longstanding history of addressing a crucial gap in disaster response - ensuring access to fundamental necessities for children.

Baby2Baby has already dispatched tens of thousands of vital items like diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, hygiene products, and comfort items to families in Maui. This effort will be further intensified in the coming week, with plans to distribute hundreds of thousands more items. To accomplish this, Baby2Baby has been leveraging its extensive network of connections, which includes celebrities (not only Matthew McConaughey and Camilla Alves but also recent supporters like Kerry Washington, Olivia Wilde, Ayesha Curry, Zooey Deschanel, Jenna Dewan, Ciara, Meghan Trainor, Kim Kardashian, January Jones, and others) as well as businesses (such as Honest, Thrive Market, Bobbie, Hello Bello, Paul Mitchell, and more).

After a decade of dedicated focus on the needs of children during disasters, Baby2Baby has acquired the expertise to heed the requests emerging from the ground. They meticulously respond by offering families precisely what is most urgently required, in manageable quantities, within the shortest feasible timeframe. This method ensures that their contributions are optimally utilized without causing any additional burdens.

While the path to recovery is long, Baby2Baby is currently channeling its efforts into addressing the most immediate relief needs for the next six weeks. Their ambitious goal is to raise one million dollars, enabling them to consistently dispatch emergency supplies throughout this critical phase to children in need.

Baby2Baby has garnered a reputation for swift action during crisis situations, having distributed over 50 million emergency supplies to children in the aftermath of catastrophic natural events. Most recently, they successfully delivered 1.3 million essential items, including diapers, wipes, and blankets, to families deeply affected by the earthquakes in Turkey and Syria. This is an addition to the 300 million fundamental necessities they annually provide to over one million children living in poverty across all 50 states.
