The country has entered a state of emergency and is asking for help from across the world. Celebrities have begun creating as much exposure of the situation as possible so donations can be made to help the affected communitys.
Comedian Celeste Barber’s Facebook Bushfire charity has surpassed $42 Million on January 7th and is rising at around $1200 a minute, this money is going Directly to the NSW Rural Fire Service.
