NEW YORK: Hollywood star Nicole Kidman and country singer Keith Urban are joining the list of celebrities donating funds to help firefighters in Australia as they continue battling massive bushfires.

“Our family’s support, thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the fires all over Australia.

 “We are donating US$500,000 to the Rural Fire Services who are all doing and giving so much right now,” the couple said on Instagram.

Kidman and Urban, native Australians who own a farmhouse outside Sydney, shared a link to local fire services where anyone can make donations.

They are the latest celebrities pledging donations to help fight the wildfires.

Two days ago, American pop singer Pink said she planned to donate US$500,000.

Actor Hugh Jackman, “Queer Eye” star Jonathan Van Ness as well as comedian and producer Nick Kroll have said on social media they were supporting Australian organisations or raising money to help firefighters.
