Good Guy Apple pledged to donate $1 million to fire relief efforts in Northern California, as well as matching employee donations 2-1.
Our thoughts are with our Bay Area friends & neighbors affected by wildfires. Please stay safe! Apple is donating to aid relief efforts.

On Sunday night, a series of fires broke out throughout Napa, Lake, Sonoma, Mendocino, and Butte counties in Northern California during severe fire weather conditions.
These fires rapidly grew to destroy an estimated 3,500 plus structures and killed at least 21 people, while over 380 people remain missing. The fires have so far burned over 170,000 acres of land, and have forced over 20,000 people to evacuate.
Other tech companies have also pledged donations. Facebook will also donate $1 million, while Google will donate $500,000.
