Michael Brown to Newsmax TV: Americans Will Open Wallets For Calif. Fire Victims

Californians impacted by the devastating wildfires will be helped by America's generosity, former FEMA director Michael Brown told Newsmax TV.

Brown was on Monday's "America Talks Live" and was asked about the current situation in the Golden State. More than 75 people have been confirmed dead because of the fires, and nearly 1,000 are still missing, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

"America is the most giving country in the world. We give more money to charitable organizations, churches, synagogues, the GoFundMe campaigns, all of that," said Brown, who ran FEMA from 2003-2005 under former President George W. Bush.

"So the outpouring of monetary resources will be overwhelming."

Brown did have a word of caution, however, when it comes to donating money to charities that claim to have good intentions.

"First, check out the charity. Make sure the charity is worthwhile, make sure that they have a good record of actually spending money on their programs," Brown said. "Or do this: find out if there's a local church that's raising money. Give money to that church.

"Just be careful of where you give your money because unfortunately, there will be scammers out there who will want to take advantage of how giving we are as Americans."

President Donald Trump visited California over the weekend and toured the destruction.
