The Australian bushfires – which started in September – have been the worst the country has seen in years. The disaster has destroyed over 2,000 homes and burned rougly 8 million hectares of land.
It has also caused the death of an estimated one billion animals, and has left a toxic smoke haze over Australia's major cities.
The destruction has prompted many celebrities to donate to bushfire relief efforts – including Aussie A-listers Nicole Kidman, Russel Crowe, Chris Hemsworth, and Margot Robbie. Lizzo also previously pledged to donate.
Fil-Aussie celebrities including Miss Universe 2018 Catriona Gray and actress Anne Curtis have also called for help, linking relief organizations on their social media pages, and encouraging their followers to donate. – Rappler.com
