And in the last two weeks especially, many people have been doing what they can in order to raise funds for the fire services battling the blazes and those who have been personally affected.
From celebrities like Pink and Elton John donating huge sums of their personal fortune to an influencer raising funds by selling intimate selfies for $10 a picture - people are doing what they can to help Australia in their time of need.Comedian Celeste Barber - whose campaign has raised millions for the Rural Fire Service in Australia - had some strong words for the world's billionaires:
Now, a company by the name of Geeky Sex Toys are doing what they can to help those in need, by releasing a limited edition sex toy, with 100% of profits going to help the ongoing bushfire relief efforts in Australia.
