In a video he calls on others to follow his example. “I hope you all can contribute in one way or another,” he writes. “Every dollar counts. The money goes directly to the firefighters, the people in the front line, the people who have suffered and the communities that need our support so badly.” The call from Australia came shortly after the message that his compatriot Celeste Barber has now raised 40 million dollars. More and more famous artists give money to the firefighters who try to extinguish the forest fires in Australia. For example, singer Pink and actress Nicole Kidman both donated $ 500,000. The fires have claimed at least 24 lives so far, more than a thousand houses have been destroyed and some 500 animals have died.
