AUSTRALIA, IT’S TIME TO BUY ANOTHER BALE
In 2018 / 2019 over 90,000 Australians bought a bale of hay for our farmers. This allowed us to provide more than $30m worth of hay, water and financial assistance to farmers in the worst hit areas.
But the drought isn’t over, in fact our farmers are currently experiencing the worst drought in recorded history. So Australia, It’s time to Buy another Bale.
Show our farmers that we are all in this together and Buy another Bale today!
Rural Aid was founded in 2015 to provide a holistic support program to rural Australia. The starting point for the charity was the success of the Buy a Bale campaign, which Australians have generously donated to allowing the distribution of fodder, hampers and more. In 2018 Rural Aid embarked on the development of a specialised counselling program, 100% fully funded to support rural communities.
Weather events such as drought, fires and cyclones mean that there is even more call for our services. We have a number of programs designed with rebuilding and repairing in mind. These include the Farm Rescue and Farm Army programs seeing thousands of volunteers give their time to support rural communities, the Gift of Music bringing the joy of music to the bush and counsellors helping reduce stress, domestic violence, and suicide in rural communities.
Congratulations to the successful towns chosen to be 2020 Towns supported by Rural Aid and our volunteers. Read More
