2018 has been one of the driest in recent history, resulting in many of our rural communities suffering the impact of a severe drought affecting our farmers and livestock.
At GME we take pride in being an Australian company and having a strong relationship with our farmers and the rural community. As a result, we are undertaking a Drought Relief Fundraising Campaign where we will be raising much needed funds for the Buy A Bale Drought Assistance Campaign.
The Buy A Bale Drought Assistance campaign is operated by the charity Rural Aid and operates throughout Australia. Buy A Bale has been operating since June 2013 and in this time, the program has received over $4.5 million in donations and delivered over 200,000 bales of hay to farmers in need across four states.
To assist in raising these funds we will run an XRS™ Connect Drought Relief Promotion. From the 15th of August until the 15th of September GME will donate 10% of revenue generated from the purchase of selected XRS products directly to Buy A Bale.
All funds raised by GME will have an immediate impact on supplying vital resources to farmers such as;
Water – Every $250 delivers 11,500 litres of water to a farm within 100kms of the collection point and,
Hay – $9,500 buys a semi-trailer load of hay and transports it to an affected area up to 900kms away
