A lot of celebrities have been coming forward to provide funds for the relief efforts of the Australia bushfire. The devastating bushfires are continuing to consume a large part of the country which has already costed the lives of over 400 million animals.

The wildfires have reportedly taken the life of 25 people and destroyed over 2,000 homes. The hotter, drier conditions combined with record high temperatures and drought are the reasons behind the devastating fires.
