I "Thank you to all that has donated! This means so much to us Aussies. We appreciate it so much. Thank you @JeffreeStar for using your platform."
I "It breaks our hearts to see all our animals dying and environment disappearing by the second. Your donation has saved us yet another minute or hour! We thank you so much Jeffree. Sincerely - Australia."
I "Thank you thank you thank you. We are feeling so alone over here 💞💞 people like you spreading awareness means the world to us 💖💖💖💖💖"
While praising Jeffree, fans also slammed other influencers for only sending "thoughts and prayers" and "sad faces".
