American media personality and billionaire Kylie Jenner has donated the sum of $1 million to the various relief efforts providing aid for the wildfires that have spread throughout Australia and have reportedly, so far caused the deaths of 25 people and billions of animals.
The donation comes after actor Chris Hemsworth and his wife, Elsa Pataky donated $1 million to assist victims and help put an end to the fires that have destroyed lives and properties. He took to Instagram to share the news while encouraging others to also come out and assist. Take a look at what he captioned the video he posted below.
“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.”
