The wildfires currently burning in Australia have ripped through 13 million acres and destroyed more than 1,500 homes.  

 

One of the homes currently under threat belongs to Nicole Kidman and Keith Urban.

 

And after an emotional night at the Golden Globes - the two have pledged to donate $500,000 to help fight the fires.

 

Kidman said on Instagram -

 

"Our family's support, thoughts and prayers are with everyone affected by the fires all over Australia. We are donating $500,000 to the Rural Fire Services who are all doing and giving so much right now."

 

Singer PINK has also pledged her support - donating $500,000 as well.  According to her Instagram: 

 

"I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires. I am pledging a donation of $500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines. My heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz"
