Art For Bales
Our Target: $50,000 Current Amount: $42,498.48
@Artforbales is an artist run Instagram campaign to raise awareness of the impact of Australia’s drought crisis on our regional communities and to raise funds for Rural Aid to provide assistance to rural communities and farmers, including water, feed for stock, financial assistance and mental health support.
This is a volunteer run campaign (Cofounders Andrea Hamann & Kate Pittas) that aims to shine a spotlight on what is happening beyond the edges of our cities. Australia needs our rural communities and our farmers and we need to support them.
The campaign provides a platform to help connect art buyers with artists who wish to donate the proceeds of an art sale to the charity Rural Aid. On October 19-20, a tonne of amazing Aussie artists will offer up a piece of their beautiful work to buyers & collectors. Each artist will list their artwork on their own Instagram account & we'll advertise on @artforbales too!
Artists, when you have sold a piece and are ready to donate the funds, please fill out the form below to pay via credit card or PayPal. If you prefer to use direct deposit, please see the right-hand side of this page for Rural Aid's bank details. Be sure to use the reference number: RASN150025
You have the option to distribute your donation between hay, water, or a combination of the two. If you would prefer to donate as a lump sum, and have your donation used where it is needed most at the moment, please enter the amount in the "Other Donation" section (located at the bottom of the form).
