British racing driver and six-time Formula One World Champion, Lewis Hamilton has pledged $500,000 to “support the animals, wildlife volunteers, and rural fire services” affected by the bushfire crisis in Australia.

 

Hamilton took to his Twitter page to announce the donation on Thursday.

 

“It breaks my heart to see the devastation the Australian bushfires are causing to people and animals across the country. I’m pledging $500k to support the animals, wildlife volunteers and rural fire services. If you are able to, and you haven’t already then you can donate too,” he tweeted.
