Chris Hemsworth has done his bit to help quash the Australian bushfires currently ravaging the nation.
The Thor actor revealed he has donated $1M to the crisis which has destroyed an area the size of South Korea.
Hemsworth announced the donation on Twitter and called on others to “chip in” and contribute funding. He joins a growing list of Hollywood stars pledging support, including fellow Aussies Margot Robbie and Nicole Kidman.
“I’m going to put forward a million dollars and was hoping you can contribute in any shape or form. That money goes directly to the firefighters, the people on the front lines, the people who have suffered, the communities that have taken a hit and who are in desperate need of our support,” he said.
He later added: “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.
“I’ve put together links supporting fire fighters, organisations and charities who are working flat out to provide support 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.”
Australian pop legend Kylie Minogue also recently revealed she had donated to the cause after returning home to the horror.
She tweeted: “Last year I had the incredible opportunity of visiting some of the many beautiful places in my homeland for the first time. Returning home to such devastation throughout much of the country is heartbreaking.
“As a family, we’ve donated $500,000 towards the immediate firefighting efforts and the ongoing support which will be required. Big or small, from near or far, any support will help those affected by the devastating bushfires. With love, The Minogue Family.”
