Ellen DeGeneres Creates Fund for Australian Bushfire Relief

Ellen DeGeneres has started a GoFundMe page to support relief efforts as fires continue to burn across Australia.

Making the announcement on today’s episode of The Ellen Show, the talk-show host started by describing how much the country means to her:

“I love Australia,” she told her audience. “I love Australia so much, I even married an Australian.”

The goal is to raise $5 million and stock photography company Shutterstock has kicked off the campaign with a $100,000 donation.

In just 6 hours, the GoFundMe page has reached over$225,000 with donations from over 2,000 Ellen fans.

According to the campaign page, all donations will go to the Australian Red Cross and WIRES Wildlife and Rescue.

Ellen has already made a donation of an undisclosed amount to these organisations directly:
