Multiple ways to donate

Since September 2019, it’s been reported that 24 people have been killed, over 14.8 million acres of land have been burned, around 1,500 homes destroyed and an estimated 500 million animals have perished as a result of the bush fires that are devastating Australia.

Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison said that the fires could continue for months. Celebrities and social media personalities have shown their support for fire services and rescuers, people who have lost their homes and the tragic impact the crisis has had on wildlife.

Nicole Kidman took to Instagram to post various websites where people can donate. She wrote: “Our family’s support, thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the fires all over Australia. We are donating $500,000 to the Rural Fire Services who are all doing and giving so much right now.”
