The Food Network star made headlines this week for raising $20 million for restaurant workers affected by the coronavirus crisis. The fundraiser is the latest in a long line of good deeds for Fieri, who has known in recent years for feeding first responders trying to fight the Northern California Wildfires. "There wasn't really anything happening in our area, so I kind of stood by. I waited a couple of days, and was starting to get a little stir crazy," Fieri said of his fundraiser, which tapped his corporate partners. "I was talking with my team at Knuckle Sandwich, and I said, 'I've gotta do something.' We were having a conversation about restaurants being closed, so I said, 'How do we make money for the employees?' The more people we talked to and the more time we spent talking, the bigger it blew up. It was really just like a jam session with your buddies. We were sitting around trying to figure out what we could do to make things better."
