Woolworths & You Can Help Drought Affected Farmers

Many farmers are suffering due to drought in Australia, and it's good to hear that one supermarket is stepping up to the plate to help.

Charles Alder, who is the CEO of Rural Aid, has said that drought conditions have worsened by as much as 40% over the past 12 months.

These farmers need our help now!

Without them we have no food, no clothes, so much that we rely on would disappear if farmers lose everything.

As you know, Woolworths replaced Ooshies not long ago with their Discovery Garden program, and kids can collect all 24 vegies, herbs and flowers, and learn how to grow things that benefit everyone.

And from this weekend, if you purchase a limited edition $2 sunflower seed kit from the Discovery Garden program, Woolworths has announced that it will match every dollar raised from the sales and donate it to S.T.A.N.D. which stands for "Support Through Australian Natural Disasters" Drought Action Appeal.

S.T.A.N.D. helps The Salvation Army, Rural Aid, Foodbank and Lifeline, and they all support the farmers and rural townships with financial aid, stock feed supplies and counselling.

So starting this weekend, make sure you drop into Woolworths and buy a limited edition sunflower seed kit, there will be a limit of 3 kits per customer.

And get this, the sunflower seed is actually sourced from a number of local Australian farmers across New South Wales.

If you don't want to buy a sunflower, you can donate to the Appeal at any Woolworths register or at their online shop.
