We are all aware of the horrific Australian Bushfires by now and people are taking action in any way that they can. While on the Australian leg of her tour, Lizzo decided to go visit air workers who are helping with the bushfire.
One of the volunteers at Foodbank shared photos of the ‘Good as Hell’ singer in a high-vis vest and can be seen speaking to helpers where they are showing her the good work they are doing to help the victims of the fire who are now struggling to get even the simplest of food essentials.

It wasn’t just words of praise that Lizzo offered, but her own help too. She got involved by helping pack boxes of food and care in order to support immediate response for those who need it most during the fire. Whether you love her or hate (obvi it’s the former for us!), you cannot deny that her help and support has been amazing.
Lizzo previously raised her voice urging fans to get involved in help as she posted a video on her Instagram story to her 7.3 million followers.
“Being over here in Australia has really given me a real-time view into what’s happening with these devastating fires and for all of my followers who are mostly American,” she explained.
“I just want to say that this is a global crisis. I don’t want to politicize anything. This isn’t a political issue at this point; this is a human issue.”
She also acknowledged that not all of her fans will have the financial benefits to donate to causes, but asked that they still “carry an awareness” for the issue.
She also took to Twitter before leaving the social media site for a well-deserved break with a list of URLs for info on how people can help.
Whether we care to admit it or not, when a celebrity status gets behind a cause that needs attention, most of us are more likely to get involved, so the fact Lizzo is really doing whatever she can to encourage her following to help is yet another reason we can’t help but stan!
