Buy a Bale is a campaign run by Rural Aid that focuses on delivering essentials like hay to drought-affected farmers. Parts of NSW and Queensland have been continuously in the grip of drought for as long as seven years, with 98% of NSW and around 66% of Queensland currently in drought or drought-affected.
Over the past few weeks the campaign has ramped up and many aussies are getting involved any way they can.
The Riverina itself is affected by the drought so it's no surprise we've all stepped up our fundraising efforts.
Below are some of the fundraising efforts happening across the Riverina.
Magpies Nest - Throughout the month of August Magpies Nest are donating all of their tip and will match it dollar for dollar.
Palm & Pawn - Donating $1 from every parmy sold for the month of August
What You Want Photography - Donating $10 from every mini session they sell for the month of August
XO Beauty - Donating $5 from every set of nails for the month of August
