When we watched Aussie comedian Celeste Barber's online bushfire fundraiser hit $50 million, we all cheered... and then the questions about where the money was going began.
We look at the breakdown of online fundraising, how the dollars go from the internet through the back end to the people who need it most and how this money might be expanding out from just benefiting the NSW RFS.
