If you’re looking to help Australians suffering the effects of devastating wildfires, Ellen DeGeneres can point you in the right direction.
On Tuesday episode of “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” the talk show host addressed the ongoing crisis in Australia.
“I love Australia,” she said. “I love Australia so much I even married an Australian. A few years ago I got to see how incredible Australia is in person. We took our show there, and I fell in love with the country and the people. And right now, Australia needs our help.”
DeGeneres announced she is setting up a GoFundMe with the goal of raising $5 million to help the firefighting, people and animals of the country.
The company Shutterfly kicked things off with a $100,000 donation to the GoFundMe, and other donations have started to pour in.
In recent days, a number of other celebrity have announced big donations to help Australia, including Nicole Kidman, who is giving $500,000, and Elton John, who is donating $1 million to the relief efforts.
