How to Help Those Affected by the Australia Fires

  • Published: 07 January 2020
  • Fires have been ravaging Australia for months, and Ellen is calling on everyone to do what they can to help the people and animals affected by the natural disaster. Ellen has set up a GoFundMe campaign with a goal of $5 million to benefit the people and animals of Australia. Ellen’s friends at Shutterfly are kicking it off with a $100,000 donation!

                                  One way to help with an Australian wildfires is to buy a bundle in Call Of Duty Modern Warfare that 100% of profits go to help put out the fire

                                          Thank you Ellen for opening this GoFundme I certainly can trust you will make the money to get to the right people. I see many people thinking it s just the wild life suffering , it is also people, the air is getting toxic, we are part of this whole ecosystem in planet earth, we got to do something and help any way possible.

                                                                I am a fan of Ellen since she tried to convince Kevin Hart to host the Oscars last year. She is one of the few comedians who knows how to be funny, serious, sensitive, and mature all at the same time. She can joke around with the celebrities, but knows how to respect their space. Unlike Letterman who I like, but he gave Janet Jackson a hard time when she didnt want to talk about the Superbowl in 2004. He kept on intergorating her when she was very uncomfortable, which made for an awarkward interview. God Bless.
