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 bushfires in Australia have caused massive devastation. They continue to burn, there’s warmer weather on its way,” he said. “We’re really still in the thick of it here. There’s plenty of challenging times ahead and still to come.”
Hemsworth also shared links to various organizations helping with relief efforts such as supporting the firefighters working tirelessly to stop the devastation and groups helping both the citizens of Australian and rescued wildlife who have been displaced and affected by the fires directly to offer necessary goods and medical attention, such as the Australian Red Cross and World Wildlife Fund.
Chris Hemsworth is far from the first celebrity to help raise awareness and charitable donations for the cause, but this hits close to home for the Australian native who wants to see his nation heal from these fires and help rebuild communities that were destroyed during this disaster.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to those affected by the bushfires in Australia and we hope relief efforts continue to help the community at large. If you feel so inclined to help the cause, we suggest researching various organizations and supporting those who share your same interests.
