The whole world knows about the devastating fires that have been killing the Amazon rainforest. Now, Leonardo DiCaprio makes a move to help in this terrible tragedy.
The Shade Room has all the details on this, and you can check them out below.
'The devastating wildfires that have ripped through the Amazon have touched the whole world—and now, Leonardo DiCaprio, one of the biggest movie stars in Hollywood, is putting up millions of dollars to help aid in the long road to recovery,' TSR writes.
TSR continues and writes that 'It’s no secret that in addition to being a brilliant actor and an Academy Award winner, Leonardo DiCaprio is also a staunch environmentalist—so the news that’s he’s stepping up in a major way to help the Amazon is definitely not a surprise.'
TSR cites data from Deadline's reports and reveals that 'Leo’s newly launched foundation, Earth Alliance, is pledging to donate $5 million to aid the Amazon in the aftermath of wildfires.'
It's been also reported that the Earth Alliance was only created back in July by Leo and philanthropists Laurene Powell Jobs and Brian Sheth.
Following the news involving the wildfires, Earth Alliance created the Amazon Forest Fund.
As expected, people are gushing over Leo in the comments and showing him tons of respect.
A fan said: 'I donated !! Have u? Details on my recent. Let’s save the planet we live in 🙏🏼'
Someone posted: 'No reason to be surprised. This man has ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT MOTHER NATURE & taking care of what’s needed for Mother Earth, period. 🌎🌍🌏✌🏽'
One other commenter wrote: 'Meanwhile, everybody too focused on them damn chicken sandwiches 👏🏽 good job Leo.'
One follower said: 'Thanks, bro my bad again. I didn’t mean to listen to my album in the forest it just came on rotation 🤦🏽♂️'
A person posted: 'This! This is what I want celebrities to do instead of telling us, people with nowhere near their amount of money to fix all the problems regarding climate change.'
Lots of people appreciate what Leo is doing for this planet.
