Australian actor Chris Hemsworth took to Instagram on Monday to post a video urges his fans and followers to donate what they can to the devastation caused by the Australian bushfires. 

Chris Hemsworth and his family have donated $1 million to help Australia fight and recover from the terrible bushfires that have been ablaze since September and experts believe they will continue to rage for months to come. The fires burning across New South Wales and Victoria (among other parts of the nation) have wiped out millions of acres and destroyed hundreds of homes, buildings and animals in the process.
