Lizzo showed off her good heart by volunteering at a food bank for families affected by wildfires during her Australian tour.

The Grammy award nominee, who will be performing in Sydney on Saturday, packed hampers at the Victoria branch of charity Foodbank Australia to be given out to fire-affected regions.


“Beautiful Lizzo stopped by our Foodbank Victoria warehouse today to thank our hardworking team and vollies [volunteers] who have been working tirelessly for the past six days…Thank you for the support," the organization posted.

Lizzo herself did not comment on social media about her volunteering stint since she's taking a break from social media.

Foodbank Victoria said they have had more than 400 volunteers help to sort and pack more than 3,000 food hampers for families affected by bush fires. But donations are still very much appreciated.

The Australia-wide fires have destroyed an estimated 2,000 homes and killed 25 people. It is estimated that half a billion animals have died in the wildfires.

The internet loves Lizzo supporting her fans.


She walks the walk.


Celebrities including Chris Hemsworth, Sir Elton John and Kylie Jenner have announced donations of one million US dollars each to relief efforts while Nicole Kidman has donated 500,000 Australian dollars (about $343,350 US dollars ) to local fire services.
