Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are dealing with their own devastation after losing their Malibu home in the California wildfires.

But the Hollywood couple are still considerate of others and have donated a generous $500,000 (£385,600) to help with relief efforts in the local area.

Such big hearts.

Earlier in the week, Liam, 28, revealed the heartbreaking moment he returned to their two-storey property after the Woolsey Fires ripped through Malibu. Footage shows the house now in ruins while a love sign that previously lit up has been completely torched.

Despite their ordeal, Liam and Miley, 25, have generously donated half a million dollars to The Malibu Foundation via Mileys The Happy Hippie Foundation.

A rep for Miley announced: Miley and Liam lost their home but are very grateful to be safe along with their animals!

Their community and state are very special to them and they want to give back to the place that has created so many beautiful memories for themselves and others.

The statement continued: These funds will be used for those in financial need, emergency relief assistance, community rebuilding, wildfire prevention and climate change resilience.

Liam posted a photo of their scorched house with a devastating caption, which read: Its been a heartbreaking few days. This is whats left of my house. Love.

Many people in Malibu and surrounding areas in California have lost their homes also and my heart goes out to everyone who was affected by these fires. I spent the day in Malibu yesterday and it was amazing to see the community pulling together to help each other out in any way they can. Malibu is a strong community and this event is only going to make it stronger.
