Rural Aid supplies $500 gift cards to farmers so that they can buy whatever they might need for their families. Sometimes this helps pay bills or goes towards some equipment repair, but often this money is used so that farmers can buy fresh food for their families.
This not only benefits the farming family that receives the gift card, but the money that they spend in the town helps to boost the entire economy and has a ripple effect in the community. Recently, we received a call from a mechanic in a small town who was incredibly thankful to Rural Aid, as a few of her farming clients had paid off their outstanding bills at her shop after receiving pre-paid visa cards.
About Rural Aid
Rural Aid is one of Australia’s largest rural charities. Well known for the highly successful ‘Buy a Bale’ campaign, the charity also provides financial assistance, water and counselling to farmers in times of drought, flood or fire. Other initiatives support its vision that farming and rural communities are safeguarded to ensure their sustainability both during and after these natural disasters.
Australian farmers produce almost 93% of Australia’s daily domestic food supply. When a natural disaster impacts farmers, it affects all of us. Many of the farmers that Rural Aid assists have not had an income in years, and yet they work tirelessly each day to keep their farms going.
