London has been having one hell of a month. First, multiple terror attacks rocked the city, including one at Ariana Grande’s concert in Manchester. Then, one of the deadliest fires the city has ever seen struck Grenfell Tower, a 24-story apartment building home to an estimated 600 people in 120 public housing units. At this time,17 people have been confirmed dead with dozens still hospitalized.
Victims of the fire and supporters alike have been gathered near the building since the fire to hold public vigils, and on Wednesday, a famous face joined the crowd of Grenfell Tower vigil-goers: Adele. She didn’t advertise that she was there; she and her husband, Simon Konecki, simply walked into the crowd and started asking what she could do to help. No one would have known about her selfless act were it not for all the others in the crowd who documented it on social media.
Adele is such a wonderful person for going to Grenfell Tower. Shows that just because someone doesn't tweet, doesn't mean they don't care.

The fact that Adele has gone to Grenfell tower and not said a word about it just proves how amazingly sincere she is.❤️

Onlookers say Adele and Konecki were “offering [their] support to everyone affected by the tragedy.” For others who want to support victims of the fire, there’s a fundraising effort organized by the Kensington & Chelsea Foundation.
