Australian actor Margot Robbie has asked her fans to donate to bushfire relief to 'give future generations the kind of childhood I was so lucky to have'.
In a video uploaded to Instagram on Monday morning, Robbie urged her 17.6 million Instagram followers to 'please, please donate'.
The Academy Award-nominated actor appeared visibly distressed as she shared personal photos of her childhood.
I don't normally do this but I really wanted to share with you some personal photos from my childhood.
Robbie grew up on the Gold Coast hinterland and showed her fans various family photos of her upbringing, including trips to the farm, pictures of her learning to drive, riding motorbikes and making 'mud pies'.

I didn't want to show you more pictures of the devastation. I wanted you to see how beautiful our country is.
"It is so beautiful and it's really really hurting right now, and it really really needs you," she said.
Let's give future generations the kind of childhood I was so lucky to have.
Robbie, who said she was 'terrible with technology', told fans she went on 'so many' different websites to donate and it was 'really really easy'.
However, she did not disclose the amount she had donated.
"Whatever you would have spent on your next cup of coffee: even a dollar would help. It's so needed right now," she urged her followers.
