Chris Hemsworth Donated A Whopping $1M To The Australian Wildfire Relief

The Australian Wildfire continues to be the talk everywhere and given how horrific it actually is, people certainly cannot get over the sheer magnitude of the sadness associated to it. According to Al-Jazeera report, Ecologists from the University of Sydney estimate almost half a billion mammals, birds and reptiles have died since the fires began in Australia. We cannot imagine the kind of destruction happening in that part of the world and what its effects will be. At least 17 people have died in blazes that have swept the country, more than 1,200 homes have been destroyed and 5.5 million hectares (13.5 million acres) of land has been burnt.
