Pop singer P!nk has donated NZD$750,300 to Australian local fire services. 

The singer who was "totally devastated" watching the Australian bushfires posted the news to Twitter on Saturday.

"I am totally devastated watching what is happening in Australia right now with the horrific bushfires.

"I am pledging a donation of US$500,000 directly to the local fire services that are battling so hard on the frontlines," she posted. 

She said her heart goes out to our friends and family in Oz.

Fans praised the singer's generosity. 

"Thanks from a burnt country which used to be known as the sunburnt country. 

"Please ensure it gets sent to the Rural Fire Service rather than the Australian Government otherwise it may end up in the Cayman Islands," said one person. 

Many said the singer showed better leadership than Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison

"IM CRYING U HAVE DONE MORE THAN OUR PRIME MINISTER! U are an angel," (SIC) said one person.

Another Twitter user said Scott Morrison should be taking notes. 

"The one who should take note is the Australian PM @ScottMorrisonMP who preferred holiday in Hawaii rather than assisting his country."

Currently, the death toll from the devastating fires since New Year's Eve stands at 13.

Thousands have lost their homes while the ecologists from the University of Sydney estimate 480 million mammals, birds and reptiles have died due to the fires.
