The report



Billionaire Andrew Forrest pledges $70 million fire relief and recovery donation 




WA mining billionaire Andrew "Twiggy" Forrest has announced he will spend $70 million on a bushfire recovery package for fire-affected communities on Australia's east-coast.

Through his Minderoo Foundation, Mr Forrest said he would provide $10 million to build a volunteer army of more than 1,200 people drawn from the mining and agriculture sectors to deploy to fire zones to assist in the rebuild of devastated communities.

Another $10 million would be spent in communities who need support in collaboration with the Australian Red Cross and the Salvation Army.

A further $50 million will be spent on a "national blueprint" for fire and disaster resilience to develop new approaches to mitigate the threat of bushfires.

Mr Forrest's donation joins a growing list of contributions from high profile figures in Australia and around the globe.

The Paul Ramsay Foundation is one of a few philanthropic foundations that has so far to contributed to the donations tally, pledging $3 million to the Red Cross, the Foundation for Rural and Regional Renewal and St Vincent de Paul, with a further $27 million to be put to long-term rebuilding efforts.

Australian comedian Celeste Barber's social media campaign, which was one of the first set up in the wake of the bushfires, has now raised more than $47 million.

On Tuesday, actor Chris Hemsworth also pledged $1 million dollars, which was matched that evening by Elton John as he closed his Sydney show.

Pink, Kylie Minogue's family, and Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban have each said they will donate $500,000 to the cause.

On Wednesday, Metallica also announced they would be contributing $750,000 to the NSW Rural Fire Service and the Country Fire Authority in Victoria.

Dozens of sports stars have also joined the cause, including Ash Barty and Chris Lynn.

Barty promised to donate her prize money from next week's Brisbane International, joining Nick Kyrgios who said he would donate $200 dollars for every ace he hits this summer.

Lynn and Glenn Maxwell have both pledged $250 to the Red Cross Bushfire Appeal for every six they hit, while Peter Siddle, Adam Zampa and Kane Richardson have all said they will donate $200 for every wicket they take during this year's Big Bash League season.

Arson based not Climate based

the Australian Bushfires caused by Arson not Climate  - nearly 200 arrests
and there's more refer video



Weather Control Admission by government sources! (this is HIGHLY important because IF there is climate change, then agents of GOVERNMENT are causing it! If this is the case (and it is) then why are the Gretas, Jennifers and AOCs of the world telling us to fork our money over to the very ones CREATING the problem. It's all a SCAM!
