Kylie Jenner ‘donates $1 million to Australia wildfire relief effort

With bushfires still raging in Australia, over 500 million animals have died there since September. However, communities are coming together, people are volunteering to fight the blazes, and complete strangers all over the world are donating what they can to support Australia.

Kylie Jenner ‘donates $1 million to Australia wildfire relief effort

Kylie Jenner has donated $1 million (£762,000) to many relief efforts in Australia to help tackle the deadly bushfires after being called out for being hypocritical. The Keeping Up With Kardashians star posted several photos to raise awareness on the rising death toll of animals in Southern Australia. She was heartbroken upon hearing half a billion animals have died but proceeded to post an Instagram story of herself wearing mink fur slippers as well as a photo with the caption: ‘Find ur fire.’

A fan responded to the photo of Kylie rocking yellow hair with: ‘If anyone needs fire… you can have ours – Australia’ and the billionaire immediately deleted the post.

Instead of a response, the star opted for donating, with an inside source telling PEOPLE: ‘That post was completely unintentional. Kylie stands behind her desire to want to help provide relief towards the devastation the fires have caused.’

The fact that her mink shoes – which cost £1,360 – came one story after her sad posts about animals made people call her a hypocrite.

A fan took to Twitter to share their disappointment with a chronological series of photos posted by Kylie of the animals, her slippers, and the Louis Vuitton website showing that they were made out of mink fur.
She captioned it: ‘Eat the rich’. Her post has gotten over 1.3 million likes on Twitter.

Elton was live on stage in Sydney at the Qudos Bank Arena and told the crowd that he’ll be giving $1million (AUD) – around £533,830 – in his bid to help the people and wildlife of Australia, after being left heartbroken by the damage the outbreak of bushfires has caused already. 100 fires are currently burning out of control in Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia, thousands of homes have been lost, 24 people have lost their lives and half a billion animals across the country are dead as a result of the blaze. According to The Mirror, Elton addressed the crisis mid-show and told the crowd: ‘You should all be in awe of the work that the firefighters are doing.
