Byron Bay residents and bonafide celebrities, Chris Hemsworth and Elsa Pataky have announced they’re donating a phenomenal $1 million towards bushfire relief, as fires continue to burn in multiple areas of Australia.
Encouraging fans to do the same, the Avengers actor used his Instagram to share the news with his 38.9 million fans.
“As you’re well aware, the bushfires in Australia have caused massive devastation. They continue to burn, there’s warmer weather on its way, we’re really still in the thick of it here and there’s plenty of challenging times ahead,” he said.
“I’m going to put forward a million dollars and was hoping that all of you could contribute in any way, shape or form.
“Every dollar counts. That money goes directly to the firefighters, the people on the frontline, the people who have suffered, the communities that have taken a hit and who are in desperate need of our support.”
