American superstar, Lizzo, spent the day volunteering at Foodbank Victoria

The "Juice" singer stopped off to aid bush fire relief in the midst of her Aussie FOMO tour.

America singer and beacon of body-positivity, Lizzo, is currently one of the most famous people in the world. Multi-Grammy-nominated, TIME magazine Entertainer of the Year 2019, she is currently in the midst of the Australian leg of her FOMO tour.

While many global mega-celebrities, such as the Kardashians and Elton John, have donated large sums of money to the Australian fire crisis, Lizzo volunteered her time, packing boxes at the Foodbank Victoria during her day off.

The "Good As Hell" artist didn't disclose her generosity on social media, it was her fellow volunteers that excitedly shared pictures and video.

Mike Adey, who worked alongside Lizzo, tweeted: "The American singer Lizzo came to visit us at FoodBank today to say thanks for helping our bushfire effected communities", and another posted a picture of her friend posing with the "Boys" singer.

 


Foodbank Australia wrote: "Beautiful @lizzobeeating stopped by our @foodbankvictoria warehouse today to thank our hardworking team and vollies who have been working tirelessly for the past 6 days.

What a star she even packed hampers for fire-affected regions. Thank you for the support", alongside a picture of the US superstar packing boxes.

It is clear that Lizzo has been deeply affected by her time in Australia. She has made impassioned pleas to her US Instagram followers for attention to the cause, saying that "this is a global crisis".

She continues explaining how even they can be impacted by the bush fires: “I think sometimes you look at something that’s happening in another country you automatically go, ‘Oh, well, you know that’s not going to happen to us, that’s not our problem, that’s another country.’ But we’re all connected on this planet. This is the Earth and we share this as a home.”

She has also made a fundraising effort during her FOMO tour, setting up buckets for audience contributions and posting links for donations on her social media.
