France’s superrich have stepped in and pledged to donate millions to help rebuild Notre-Dame, one of the most recognised sights in Paris, after the centuries-old cathedral was devastated by a fire.

The fire toppled the cathedral’s iconic spire and led to the collapse of the roof, but the two bell towers and much of the shell of the structure were saved.

French President Emmanuel Macron has vowed to rebuild the cathedral, and it seems that he’ll have the help of millions of dollars from some of France’s wealthiest citizens.

At least $US728 million has so far been pledged to help rebuild the beloved cathedral.

Bernard Arnault, LVMH’s chairman and CEO and France’s richest person; François-Henri Pinault, Kering’s founder; and the Bettencourt Meyers family, which controls L’Oréal, are among the major donors so far. Together, the billionaires behind the three French luxury groups pledged $US565 million.
