The Big Dry Drought Appeal

Macquarie Media, Fairfax Media and Buy A Bale have joined forces to launch The Big Dry Drought Appeal. 

We may have had some good rains on the coast recently, but inland Australia has been crippled by drought, leaving many farming families on their knees, both financially and emotionally.

Once productive paddocks are now barren dust bowls, and there is no feed to keep animals alive.

What feed can be sourced, must be trucked from interstate at a cost of thousands of dollars per month. It’s money that farmers simply don’t have.

There are towns that are quite literally running out of water and are on severe water restrictions.

Some farming families are only able to shower once per week. Children are cleaning their teeth with a cup of water. Some kids are filling their water bottles at school, because the water situation at home is so dire.

By making a cash donation to Buy A Bale, you’ll be helping farmers in a direct and immediate way.

Every cent donated goes towards the purchase of feed and water for animals and for groceries to keep farming families going.

We need to do something to help our farmers. And we need to do it now.
