Australia Bushfire Relief

Ellen loves Australia and its people, and right now they need our help. For months, wildfires have been burning across the country in record-breaking heat and strong winds. Thousands of people have been displaced, homes have been burned, and lives have been lost. Nearly half a billion animals have been killed, and nearly a third of their habitat has been destroyed.

This campaign will help the firefighters, people, and animals of Australia. The goal is to raise  $5 million, and with your help, Ellen believes we can reach that goal and help those in need.

Donations will be going to Australian Red Cross , a humanitarian aid and community services charity in Australia, and WIRES , Australia’s largest wildlife rescue organization.

The Ellen team is working with (a 501c3 non-profit organization, EIN # 81-2279757) to manage donations. All donations made on this page will be held by for the purpose of distributing such contributions in support of Australian organizations focused on wildfire relief.
