The Australian bushfires are still raging on, wreaking devastation across the continent. It's a terrible time and people around the world are coming together to try and provide whatever help they can to the victims of this natural disaster. 

Artist BossLogic, who is extremely popular for his fan art posters, has decided to pitch in with a special 'Guardians of the Galaxy' artwork. He  shared on it on Instagram and it illustrates the tragic nature of the bushfires in the most touching way possible. The poster shows Groot (Vin Diesel), the beloved tree alien from 'Guardians', walking across a devastated field with flames sprouting all over his body while cradling a koala. 

As if that wasn't heartbreaking enough, the artist captioned the image with the words "I'll call you Rocket!" You can check out the post here.

Prints of the artwork are available for sale online and BossLogic has promised that all proceeds from sales of the piece will be donated to the Red Cross to help those affected by the fires and the brave souls who are still fighting on the front lines. The image has since gone viral and it's even been reshared by 'GotG' director James Gunn on his Instagram. 

The director also shared an image of a thirsty koala with the caption, "This is a koala begging a cyclist for water in the unbearable heat in Australia due to the fires. Please consider giving to one of the many charities helping out the Australian people and the wildlife there right now. Link to the Australian Red Cross is in my bio. ❤️ And let’s all do what we can in 2020 to face the realities of global climate change and be a part of making a difference."

'Thor' star Chris Hemsworth has also announced his support for multiple Australian charities and promised to donate a substantial sum of money to aid the relief efforts. Millions of hectares of land have been devastated by the fires across the country with over 20 people killed and many more rendered homeless.
