Currently, wildfires are ravaging Australia and billions of acres of land has been torched. Brave firefighters from all over Australia have joined forces to fight the fires and try to end the plight, but funds are making it tough for these brave heroes to win the battle. So, generous donors from all walks of life have started donating huge sums of money to help these firefighters win the battle.
The latest celebrity to join the cause is boxing legend Manny Pacquiao. With his charitable foundation backing the fight against the fire, his recent partnership with crypto will certainly help KO the blaze in Australia!
Teaming Up with Crypto to KO Problems from Around the World
Most people will remember that back in September 2019, Manny Pacquiao launched his very own PAC coin to help fans own a slice of his popularity. However, in October 2019, his charitable foundation, the Manny Pacquiao Foundation, teamed up with goliaths from the crypto world to allow donors to donate in a range of cryptocurrencies. Most notably, Verge and changeangel stepped up to the plate to help people interested in donating in cryptocurrency make a difference to the world. Verge is the official digital currency partner, while changeangel is the Manny Pacquiao Foundation’s global awareness partner in cryptocurrency. Together, these three giants are helping to tackle social issues and poverty on a global scale.
Crypto Taking Down the Bushfires
As bushfires rage across Australia, more and more donations have begun flooding in. So far, at the time of writing, the Manny Pacquiao Foundation in partnership with Verge and changeangel has managed to scoop up a blistering $25,000 and the donations keep on coming. Without the incredible awareness and love from the crypto community, this charitable drive wouldn’t have managed to secure so many donations in such a short space of time.
Update: almost at 20k USD and the #crypto #donations are still coming in. Well done @vergecurrency @LTCFoundation and $BTC communities.
Thanks @changeangel_io for helping with spreading the @MPac_Foundation

The crypto community is well known for being charitable, with the Bitcoin community collecting enough money to help more than 500 children in Venezuela get the school supplies they need to start life on the right foot. If the crypto community can come together for this desperate cause, perhaps the community can help extinguish the bush fires and bring normality back to these destroyed locations.
