Australian pop-star Sia has pledged up to US$100,000 funding to the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) on social media.

“Help our queer and immigrant friends. Send me your donation and receipts for the ACLU and I will match up to $100k,” Sia tweeted this afternoon.

More than 40,000 people have “liked” or “re-tweeted” the Chandelier singer and songwriter's post.

Comedian Rosie O'Donnell and director Judd Apatow are among many people who have tweeted donation receipts.


ACLU is a non-profit organisation which works to “defend free speech and right to protest, fight relentless attacks on reproductive freedom, and reform the US’s racially-biased criminal justice system,” according to their website.

Social media has gone into overdrive in wake of President Donald Trump’s crackdown on Muslim immigration.

A US federal judge has since issued an emergency stay which temporarily allows the arrival of people with valid visas at American airports.
