Chris Hemsworth Donates $1 Million Towards Relief Efforts Fighting Australian Bushfires

Chris Hemsworth Donates $1 Million Towards Relief Efforts Fighting Australian Bushfires. Australian native and actor, Chris Hemsworth, has pledged a $1 Million donation to relief efforts against the Australian bushfires that have devastated the country over the first week of the New Year. Hemsworth shared his efforts via his Instagram.

“I’m going to put forward a million dollars, and was hoping that all of you can contribute in any way shape or form,” Hemsworth said. “Every dollar counts. That money goes directly to the firefighters, the people on the frontlines, the people who have suffered, the communities that have taken a hit and who are in desperate need of our support.”

“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.
