Pop superstar @Pink pledged to help the people of #Australia, who have been affected by devastating brushfires in recent days, donating $500,000 “directly to the local fire services.” “I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires,” #Pink wrote on social media early Saturday morning. “I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz.” The So What singer’s post follows days of an ongoing brushfire ravaging Australia, forcing “tens of thousands” to flee the area. As #Breitbart News reported, “at least 17 people have been killed, hundreds of homes have been destroyed, and an estimated half-billion animals — both livestock and wildlife — have been burned alive.” Prime Minister Scott Morrison announced the deployment of thousands of military reservists in an effort to beat the devastating fires back. “Today’s decision puts more boots on the ground, puts more planes in the sky, puts more ships at sea,” Morrison stated.
