Firefighters are still battling one of the most devastating bushfires that Australia has seen in years. According to a recent report by CNBC, it has claimed the lives of nearly half a billion animals residing in Australia's New South Wales. In order to help with the situation, celebrities are using their social media platforms to encourage people to donate for the cause. Kim Kardashian and Selena Gomez are just a few names among the celebrities who have pledged their support. Alecia Beth Moore or popularly known as Pink also selflessly pledged $500,000 as she was "totally devastated" by the current situation, reports Daily Mail



 

 

Destroying over 1500 homes, the bushfires death toll reached 23 on Saturday. Concerned about the uncontrollable fire, Pink shared links to local state fire services in Australia on her Twitter account for her followers to make donations of their desired amount. I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz, wrote the 40-year-old singer-songwriter.  



 

 

Even Selena Gomez shared her prayers for the ones affected by the bushfire on her Instagram as per Daily Mail. Absolutely devastated by the fires in Australia. Praying for everyone affected and all of the first responders. I'm making a donation and would love if you would consider doing the same if you can, wrote the 27-year-old singer. Kim Kardashian was also one of the many who informed her fans how "over half a billion animals have been killed in Australia" through her Instagram stories. The 39-year-old reality star also retweeted Bernie Sanders' post which linked the raging fire to climate change. Soon after she tweeted a post which read: Climate change is real (broken heart and a globe emoji.



 

 

Kourtney Kardashian too expressed her heartbreak in a post which read: Half a billion animals have died in the fires (crying emoji). In addition to these celebrities, Kelly Rowland who is currently a judge on The Voice (Australian version) also shared a video alongside her five-year-old son to give their best wishes. As the world welcomes a new year, let us keep all those affected by the horrific fires in Australia in our hearts... let's hold each other up with love and prayer. #Australia, expressed the 38-year-old in the caption of the video. 



 

 

Then there was Chris Brown who posted a heartbreaking plea on Instagram which was sent by a fan who begged the artist to help raise awareness. The 30-year-old singer shared the screenshots of this letter which read: Australia is burning please help us. We really need any kind of help [or] donations or awareness spread. When California was on fire in 2018, our firefighters were right there helping put the blazes out [but] this is 1000x worse then any fire in history. California burnt 800,000 hectares in 2018. Australia has already burnt four MILLION hectares. Canberra Australia has the worst air pollution in the WHOLE WORLD right now.
