JUSTIN TIMBERLAKE has donated $100,000 (#50,000) to an Australian wildlife
fund, paying tribute to deceased crocodile hunter STEVE IRWIN.
The U.S. pop superstar is currently touring Australia on the latest leg of
his FutureSex/LoveShow tour.
And during a concert in Brisbane on Saturday (27Oct07) evening, he announced
plans to give $100,000 to a scheme set-up by Irwin.
Timberlake had been given a guided tour of the facility in Queensland by
Irwin on a previous tour, prompting the generous gesture.
He told the crowd, “When I came here last time, it really hit me…I said to
myself: ‘What can I do?’
“So what I did was 50 cents from every ticket sold on the Australian tour
goes to Wildlife Warriors.”
Irwin was killed in 2006, when a stingray pierced his heart.
