Rural Aid Fundraiser - Wine to Water

Rural Aid Fundraiser - Wine to Water

For every litre of wine sold, we will donate 1L of water to help out our Australian farmers.

One of the worst droughts in Australia’s history is impacting rural communities & our farmers need our help!

In such an extended drought, livestock are not the only ones facing a lack of water. Many dams and reservoirs in rural Australia are drying up, which means countless farming families are struggling to access water. Through Rural Aid, just $450 can give a family an entire tank of water- 11,500 litres. This donation provides families with some of the basic luxuries that we take for granted every day-like a shower.

Community fundraising is such an essential element of Rural Aid because it allows them to improve the lives of 10,000 registered farmers, their families and their communities. 100% of the funds raised are given directly to the farmers-no administrative fees are taken out.

A Rural Aid coordinator recently spoke with a farmer who hadn’t had a shower in weeks, because she was saving the water so that her kids could take showers before school. She felt that their comfort far outweighed her own. When Rural Aid delivered water to her and her family, she was finally able to take a well-earned, relaxing shower after months of stress and sacrifice.

Giving to Rural Aid not only makes a great difference in the lives of Australian farmers, it shows them that we are in this together, and that they are not forgotten.
