THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO BOUGHT A TANK IN SEPTEMBER!
We are proud to say that over September, we raised and donated $3000 to the Buy a Bale foundation to support struggling Aussie farmers.
There are thousands of farmers struggling across Australia who need our help to keep their cattle, sheep and horses alive through one of the worst droughts in living memory. Aussie farmers are the backbone of our country, producing the food we eat every day and lifting our economy.
There was no doubt that now is the time to give back to the farmers.
This fundraiser was one close to our hearts. The Directors here at Global wanted to get behind Buy A Bale because they were also farmers in their previous work life and they understand how hard farming can be, especially in dry times like these.
About 80% of our products go to rural areas, and after hearing some awful stories of the struggling farmers in need, we knew we needed to get behind this fantastic fundraiser. September is traditionally a good month for us, so we thought it would the best time and opportunity to give as much as we could to those in need.
We doubled our advertising budget to push the fundraising number as high as we could, and our customers were very enthusiastic about helping in any way they could afford.
With storm season soon approaching, we now hope the rain can break the drought and that Aussie farmers will able to get back on their feet.
Thank you to everyone who donated!
