As Australia continues to burn, many celebrities have donated thousands of dollars to help fire the fires, including some of our favorite ‘B&B’ stars.
Australia has been fighting non-stop bushfires recently, with other countries sending firefighters to help. According to CNN, so far the fires have killed 27 people, 14 million acres have burned and more than 2,000 have been destroyed or badly damaged. At one stage, thousands of people were trapped on a beach as the seaside town they were visiting burned.

Go to @wireswildliferescue to help the animals and @redcrossau to help the families! #Repost @gretathunberg ・・・ Australia is on fire. And the summer there has only just begun. 2019 was a year of record heat and record drought. Today the temperature outside Sydney was 48,9°C. 500 million (!!) animals are estimated dead because of the bushfires. Over 20 people have died and thousands of homes have burned to ground. The fires have spewed 2/3 of the nations national annual CO2 emissions, according to the Sydney Morning Herald. The smoke has covered glaciers in distant New Zealand (!) making them warm and melt faster because of the albedo effect. And yet. All of this still has not resulted in any political action. Because we still fail to make the connection between the climate crisis and increased extreme weather events and nature disasters like the #AustraliaFires That has to change. And it has to change now. My thoughts are with the people of Australia and those affected by these devastating fires.
Rena Sofer (Quinn) recalled the cast’s visit to Melbourne Zoo in Australia while filming the 30th anniversary show. She said how they were all overwhelmed with the beauty of Australia and the kindness of its people, while visiting some of the beautiful animals that live there. Rena also asked fans and followers to go to @wireswildlife to help the animals and @redcrossau to help the people of Australia.

“I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And I will not let what I cannot do interfere with what I can do.” – Edward Everett Hale Wildfires have now burned over 15 million acres in Australia. 100,000+ people have had to evacuate their homes, 25 people have lost their lives, over half a billion animals have been killed, and the fires will continue to burn for months to come. This is a heart-wrenching ecological disaster. We need to come together as a global community and help in any way we can. @sainthoax put together a wonderful list of organizations you can donate to (swipe right above) I have also added a link in my profile with plenty of information on how to help. ❤️ Our hearts are with you Australia.
Last, but by no means least, is a post by Katherine Kelly Lang (Brooke) featuring a shocking photo of the fires with a firefighter in the foreground. She asks fans and followers to donate what they can to @wireswildliferescue, www.koalasinvare.org.au and the Red Cross of Australia.
Many thanks to the “B&B” stars who have made it their aim to do all they can to help Australia during its time of great need.
