Kylie Jenner is donating $1 million to various relief efforts in Australia amid the devastating bushfires, PEOPLE exclusively confirms.
The star’s generous donation comes after she faced backlash for posting a photo wearing mink fur slippers on social media, while simultaneously raising awareness about the rising death toll of animals in Southern Australia via her Instagram stories. Fans felt that Jenner, 22 was hypocritical after she shared a pic of herself wearing $1,480 Louis Vuitton mink fur slippers amid the wildfires devastation, which have claimed the lives of at least 25 people, burned through more than 11 million acres and taken the lives of at least half a billion animals since they sparked in September.
The Kylie Cosmetics mogul previously posted several Instagram Stories raising awareness about the fires. But a source tells PEOPLE that Jenner wants to do whatever she can to help Australia. “That post was completely unintentional,” the insider says. “Kylie stands behind her desire to want to help provide relief towards the devastation the fires have caused.”
