Rural Aid has been running it’s Buy a Bale fundraising campaign to support drought affected communities for 4 years now. The drought ain’t over and as we continue to support farmers and their communities we’re calling for your help again to keep the trucks running. In many parts of western Queensland, less than 30% of the annual rainfall has been received in the last 12 months. Farmers who have stock are hand feeding again. Farmers who can afford feed are, but many aren’t able to afford it and they need our help.
The Buy a Bale program has delivered over 160,000 bales of hay in 4 years. We’ve carted hay across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and South Australia to drought affected farmers.
If you can’t donate, why not donate some time and join our farm army of volunteers working across thousands of farms across Australia. Membership is free and you can jump online at www.farmarmy.com.au
If you a resident of Townsville you could win a years supply of Red Rooster chicken by donating a minimum of $5 to Red Rooster Townsville fundraising efforts for our farmers.
