Last month, a devastating earthquake hit the town of Christchurch, New Zealand — the country’s second-largest city — and caused irrefutable damage, including the destruction of over 500 buildings.  While no deaths were reported, the damage is estimated to cost over £930million. Enter: Robin Williams.

Wiliams announced earlier this week that while in New Zealand, he will donate 100% of the proceeds from his Christchurch shows to victims of the quake.

“It is devastating what has happened in Christchurch but from what I have learnt, the people there are incredibly resilient,” said Williams. “The first quake of 7.1 would have been traumatic enough but I understand that since then, the people of Christchurch have experienced close to 3,000 after-shocks

“That is an unimaginable trauma to have to endure. I hope this donation will go some way to helping the extensive rebuilding effort in the city.”

Half of the money Williams raises will be donated to the Red Cross, while the other half will be given to the local mayoral building fund.

We’re happy to see the funny man pitching in. Good work, sir!
