The bushfires in Australia, which have been burning since September, have killed at least 25 people, destroyed 2,000 homes and killed an estimated 500 million animals. In all, about 15 million acres have burned across the country – an area roughly the size of West Virginia.

Worldwide donations have come from celebrity, business and sportspeople donations hit great height for charity and bushfire relief Donations for bushfire relief have topped the $100 million mark after mining magnate Andrew Forrest announced he was tipping in $70 million in donations for bushfire relief from his Mindaroo Foundation.
