CHRIS HEMSWORTH has donated a $1million (£523,000) towards the bushfires fund.
The 36-year-old Australian actor has also called on his fans to ‘chip in’ to support relief efforts and fire services.
The Thor star posted an emotional video clip on Instagram, saying: ‘Every penny counts so whatever you can muster up is greatly appreciated. It really does make a difference, so dig deep! Love ya.’
Meanwhile, Sir Elton John matched Hemsworth’s pledge — which he announced on stage during a concert at Sydney’s Qudos Bank Arena.
‘You should all be in awe of the work that the firefighters are doing,’ Sir Elton, 72, told the crowd. ‘To see what is happening here breaks my heart.’
