Singer Pink Pledges Half A Mil To Australia Fire Service
POP STAR PINK PLEDGES $500K TO HELP AUSTRALIAN FIREFIGHTERS BATTLING BUSHFIRES
(CNN) – Pink is raising her glass to Australian firefighters.
She’s pledging $500,000 to help them battle the nation’s devastating bushfires.
The pop star tweeted, “I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires… My heart goes out to our friends and family in oz.”
She wrote the donation is going directly to local fire service.
Three fires combined Saturday to form a single fire larger than the New York borough of Manhattan.
At least 23 people have died in the wildfires.
And more than 1,300 houses have been destroyed in the state of New South Wales alone.
Pink joins a number of celebrities in pledging donations to help fight the Australian wildfires.
They include Lamelo Ball and Nick Kyrgios.
