People and organsations around the world are trying to raise awareness and even donate towards the relief fund for the bushfires. One famous model hit the headlines when she offered to send nudes to her followers who were donating towards the Australia bushfires and managed to raise over a million dollars. Celebrities like Kylie Jenner and Metallica have donated over a million dollars as well but when Amazon founder Jeff Bezos posted on his social media, informing the world about his donation, he was roasted and trolled for it.View this post on Instagram
Our hearts go out to all Australians as they cope with these devastating bushfires. Amazon is donating 1 million AU dollars in needed provisions and services. Find more about it and learn how customers can help as well. Link in bio.

With his net worth being estimated close to $936 billion, he has offered to donate $690,000 towards the relief funds. People cannot fathom that he makes over $78.5 billion in a year personally and yet he decided to donate only a tiny amount (as per his wealth's estimate).
If I had one million dollars and gave 75 cents to Australia, I would have given a bigger portion of my wealth than Jeff Bezos did https://t.co/gjBJ9aAlZL— mel (@MervinMastishin) January 13, 2020
Jeff Bezos gave $690,000 to wild fires in Australia, and has 116.7 billion dollars. To put this into perspective, my boyfriend has $1,500 net savings, and that would be the equivalent to him donating 0.88 cents.— Janet E. McSaxophone (@janeejpg) January 14, 2020
People are also mad that this amount is less than what he makes in 5 minutes, and we cannot even cook instant noodles in that time.
Jeff Bezos makes $149,353 a minute. His company's board refused to pass a climate proposal. He just donated LESS THAN 5 MINUTES of work to Australia.
This is simply not enough. Tax-the-rich! https://t.co/Sri3Xtkhos
Australia can have a little of Jeff Bezos' time.
3 minutes exactly.
Over 2 months ago, he was trolled for donating around $98 million for homeless people across 23 states in the US because that was around 0.08% of his net worth. What is happening in Australia is the stark yet sad reality of how real the climate change is. Please contribute and do your bit in not just donating towards a relief fund but also doing whatever you can to contribute in saving our planet.
