Rural Aid Co Ordinators
To help assist and coordinate assistance to rural communities we are developing a team of volunteer coordinators who will help deliver our support services and work with other community organisations.
We are screening Zootopia in a number of rural towns in Queensland and New South Wales.
Rural Aid Gift Card
The most effective way to provide cash injections into the bush is through a Gift Card program. Gift cards purchased through our website are then distributed with funds loaded to farmers most in need. Farmers can then use those cards at any participating retailer and we pay the retailer for the funds redeemed. Read more here
