Apple CEO Tim Cook has announced on Twitter that Apple will be donating towards Australia’s fire relief efforts.
Tim Cook’s tweet regarding the donation
Bushfires have been a major concern in Australia for two months now, due to record heat waves and long periods of drought. About 800 homes have already been lost and nine lives claimed. Moreover, wildlife in the region is being impacted as well.
Currently, the country has mobilized more than a thousand firefighters to try and control the blaze. Half the bushfires raging across Australia have been quelled, but the next heatwave is approaching and there are fire dangers rated ‘severe’ in the South Australia region.
Apple has donated to fire relief efforts and major disasters before, with the most recent one in California. Along with the pledge of support, Tim Cook sends his thoughts to the courageous volunteer force who fight the bushfire blazes via Twitter.
