Chris Hemsworth took to Instagram to announce that he will donate $1 million to help Australian wildfire relief efforts.
Hemsworth explained, "As you're well aware, the brush fires in Australia have caused massive devastation [and] they continue to burn. There's warmer weather on its way [and] we're still in the thick of it here. There are plenty of challenging times ahead... and what we need is your support and your donations."
The actor urged his fans and followers to donate and support the fight against the wildfires, telling folks that every single penny donated would help firefighters at the forefront and would go toward the people, animals and communities that these fires are deeply affecting.
"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."
According to CBS News, about 12.35 million acres have burned in Australia destroying more than 1,400 homes and claiming the lives of about 23 people. Further, the fires have also claimed the lives of more than half a billion wild animals.
Most recently, Pink, Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban pledged to donate $500,000 to the Australian Fire Relief.
