Wildfires continued to burn on the island on Friday, the day she posted about the relief fund.
On Thursday, Sanchez posted on Threads that they would be making a donation. On Friday, she posted on both Instagram and Threads that both of them are establishing a $100 million Maui fund. This fund will help “Maui get back on its feet now and over the coming years” and more.

Celebrity Oprah Winfrey, who also has a home in Maui, donated pillows, blankets, cots, toiletries and other items to shelters she visited in person. She is expected to do more after it becomes clear where both short- and long-term funds will be required.
