Leonardo DiCaprio’s Charity Is Donating $5 Million To Combat The Fires In The Amazon

Last month, LEONARDO DICAPRIO and some other activists launched an environmental organization called Earth Alliance. 

And yesterday, he announced they’re putting up $5 million to help combat the wildfires that have been burning up the Amazon. They’re also asking for donations.

Leo said, quote, “100 percent of your donation will go to partners who are working on the ground to protect the Amazon. Earth Alliance is committed to helping protect the natural world.

“We are deeply concerned about the ongoing crisis in the Amazon, which highlights the delicate balance of climate, biodiversity, and the well-being of indigenous peoples.”
