Hi everyone. Like you, I want to support the fight against the bushfires here in Australia. My family and I are contributing a million dollars. Hopefully you guys can chip in too. Every penny counts so whatever you can muster up is greatly appreciated. In my bio I’ve added links to support the fire fighters, organisations and charities who are working flat out to provide support and relief during this devastating and challenging time. Beyond appreciative to everyone around the world for their well wishes and donations. It really does make a difference, so dig deep! Love ya.
The message was also reposted by Liam Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky.
The generous donation comes after a number of other celebrities announced contributions to various bushfire charities including Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban, Pink and the Minogue sisters who have all made contributions of $500,000.
Meanwhile, Celeste Barber’s Facebook fundraiser has now reached over $40 million thanks to donations from her fans around the world.
