Helping drought affected farmers

I grew up in central NSW and have been living in Brisbane now for the past 19 years. When we live in the city It's easy to forget how tough it really is for the Farmers and their families.  We have great bars, restaurants and clubs which we all enjoy here in the city but a lot of us(including myself) have forgotten where our food really comes from and the year in year out struggles our farmers suffer to provide us with our food. 
I was personally affected by the recent stories in the news regarding the struggling farmers in Central NSW and i have decided to try to help as many as i can.  
Currently i have approached my business associates and have been able to raise a few thousand dollars so far to go towards buying 2 B Doubles of Hay from Central Qld to go down to Yeoval in NSW. The Hay will cost approximately $8200 depending on how much we can fit on each truck and we have been given the 2 B Double trucks free of charge by Nicholson and Page Transport if we can raise the fuel money for them.
A HUGE THANK YOU TO NICHOLSON AND PAGE.  It's great to see the Aussie spirit is still alive.
A lot of these farmers are finding it hard to put food on their table as they are spending everything they have keeping their stock alive so they still have some sort of income to survive.
The government and banks are not doing enough to help and when they do it's often too late.
I feel it's time to give back to the people in all of our lives who spend their lives providing for us.
100% of All funds raised will go towards Food, Stock feed and Truck fuel as i have approached both BP and Shell at this stage to provide the Diesel and they can't assist so we need to cover the fuel costs until i can hopefully find a supplier who will help.
We need the funds immediately to help these families keep their farms, their remaining stock, their livelihood and their Pride........... please help.

Kind Regards,

Drought Team.
