#BushfireAustralia: Shane Warne to auction his baggy green cap to help bushfire victims

The horrific bushfires in Australia have left us all in disbelief.


Leg spin legend Shane Warne has decided to auction off his coveted baggy green cap which he sported during his Test carrier, in a bid to raise funds for bushfire victims of Australia.

Taking it to social media former Australian bowler wrote a detailed account asking people to donate generously.

In an Instagram while sharing a photo of him holding his coveted baggy green cap, Shane Warne wrote:

“The horrific bushfires in Australia have left us all in disbelief. The impact these devastating fires are having on so many people is unthinkable and has touched us all. Lives have been lost, homes have been destroyed and over 500 million animals have died too.

Everyone is in this together and we continue to find ways to contribute and help on a daily basis. This has lead me to auction off my beloved baggy green cap (350) that I wore throughout my test career (when I wasn’t wearing my white floppy hat).

I hope my baggy green can raise some significant funds to help all those people that are in desperate need. Please go to the link in my bio and make a bid & help me to donate a big cheque! Thank you so much”.
