This week, the Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, France, suffered a major fire that resulted in extensive damage throughout the historic building. Apple’s chief executive officer, Tim Cook, has pledged the company’s assistance in rebuilding efforts.
On Tuesday morning, Cook tweeted that Apple will be “donating to the rebuilding efforts” in an effort to “help restore” the legendary cathedral. Cook did not go into any major details, simply saying that the cathedral’s “precious heritage” must be restored for “future generations”.
We are heartbroken for the French people and those around the world for whom Notre Dame is a symbol of hope. Relieved that everyone is safe. Apple will be donating to the rebuilding efforts to help restore Notre Dame’s precious heritage for future generations.🇫🇷

The cause of the fire remains unknown at the time of publication. However, the leading theory is tied to ongoing renovations that were taking place within Notre Dame. Those were originally planned to be completed either before the end of this year, or in early 2020. At the time of this report, it has been previously revealed that a first responder was injured in the blaze. However, no one has been reported dead in relation to the perceived accident.
