Regardless of how you feel in regards to celebrities, this is pretty cool. Leonardo Dicaprio is taking charge with helping putting out the fires in the Amazon Forest. The Once Upon In Time In Hollywood star has taken it upon himself to donate $5 Million to the local partners and the people who are trying to combat the fires.
According to Vulture.com, DiCaprio launched the environmental organization Earth Alliance in July with Laurene Powell Jobs, wife of the late Steve Jobs, and Brian Sheth. On Sunday the organization announced the Amazon Forest Fund, which they say will distribute donations “directly to local partners and the indigenous communities protecting the Amazon,” including the Instituto Associação Floresta Protegida and the Coordination of the Indigenous Organizations of the Brazilian Amazon, among others.
The amazon fires are still active so any other wealthy celebrities or people out there want to chip in, go for it! Now's the time!
