It’s Sad But Real: Australia is relying on ash. Animals are passing away by the millions and at least 25 individuals have been killed in the devastating bushfires, so legendary rock band Metallica has actually signed up with the list of stars to contribute a tremendous amount of money to bushfire relief efforts.
Presently, it’s approximated that more than a billion animals have passed away across the country as a result of the raging blazes. In New South Wales (NSW) alone, an area particularly affected by infernos, 1,588 homes have been destroyed and a more 653 damaged.
In the middle of the continuous difficulty the country is dealing with, artists, stars and other celebs have announced contributions to aid Australia, and now Metallica, the famous rock band, has pledged $750,000.
