Reading Time: < 1 minute

Singer Pink is leading an initiative among a host of celebrities on social media to collect donations to help confront the Australia’s bushfire crisis.

Pink revealed that she’ll personally donate a massive $500,000 “directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontline.”

The singer-songwriter, who has embarked upon many mammoth tours of Australia through her career, said she was “totally devastated” watching the unfolding crisis. “My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz.”

Meanwhile, tennis star Nick Kyrgios pledged to donate $200 to those affected by bushfires for every ace he hits across events he plays this summer, prompting Sam Stosur to follow his lead.

After his Coffs Harbour property was affected by the blaze late last year, Russell Crowe has been vocal about the fires on Twitter and Instagram.

Posting a series of confronting images from near his home, the actor wrote in November, “Still burning … they say a wind change might crank things up again in the valley.

“I hope wherever you are in Australia, or California or anywhere else facing bushfires, that you and yours remain safe”.
