Native Aussies Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban took to Instagram share that they have donated half a million dollars to the NSW Rural Fire Service.

“Our family’s support, thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the fires all over Australia. We are donating $500,000 to the Rural Fire Services who are all doing and giving so much right now,” Kidman wrote.

Pink also donated $500,000, tweeting, “I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz.”

On January 5th, NSW Rural Fire Service tweeted that 136 fires continue to burn across NSW, with 69 being uncontained.

“Today crews will focus on containment of these large fires, working with heavy plant and aviation assets,” the fire service wrote.

Officials say so far 24 people and 480 million animals have died nationwide as a result of the fires. In total, more than 14.7 million acres have burned across the country’s six states.

Though recent rain has brought relief, officials have warned that temperatures will rise and fires will start blazing once more.
