Hay babes!

These images are confronting. I get it. It’s hard to look at. But imagine if this was your life. Your reality. The recent bushfires have been devastating on so many levels. We have been flooded with requests to donate, contribute, give what you can. I’m suremost of you have already donated and thinking “surely she isn’t asking me to give again?” But that’s exactly what I’m doing. Starbucks Excavation have generously provided the trucks needed to take hay to much needed areas. But the trucks are empty. We need to buy the hay. That’s exactly where every dollar raised will go. So many cattle have already been lost in the fires and the remaining are at risk of dying due to lack of feed. These areas have probably already been struck hard by drought and now this. I can’t imagine the poor farmers faced with the decision to put down their remaining stock simply due to lack of feed. It’s heartbreaking. Without their livestock how can these communities rebuild independently? We can’t do anything About what has been lost but we can save what’s left.  Jimmy Starbuck has already made one trip to take hay to these desperate cattle and described the cows running towards the trucks as “shit”, they are starving. I’ve created this fundraiser the “Hay Babes” a play on words not to take away from the seriousness but to remind us that collectively we can make a HUGE difference. I’m not asking for much. But whatever you can afford. Proud Poppy Clothing has over 7k followers - if we each give $1 that’s 7k!! We already raised over 3k for Mallacoota now I’m asking you to double it, because I know how amazing you all are so let’s bloody do this!!! Collectively just one dollar each could make a hugedifference! If you can give more - amazing! But all I’m asking is $1 each. 44591778_1578462434148817_r.jpeg44591778_1578462454887674_r.jpeg
