Because #MatesHelpMates

The Burj Khalifa will be illuminated in a different style tonight - as a message of solidarity for the Australians affected by the tragic bushfires ravaging the country. 

The UAE government has said it will live-stream the event, which will happen at 8.10pm Wednesday evening. 

It's unconfirmed what will be shown on the Burj.

It follows the news of HH Sheikh Mohamed offering support to Australia from UAE forces for the fires, and several fundraisers happening around the country to support the people and animals affected. 

More than 1 billion animals are feared to have been killed in the worst fires in Australia on record. 

Here's how you can help.
