One of my greatest achievements in life is the creation and continued success of Aussie Helpers Charity.
No one wants to admit things are tough, and farmers are some of the proudest people in Australia. But sometimes they need our help, especially before it’s too late. Aussie Helpers stays in touch with 100’s of farming families to ensure their well-being and survival through good and bad times.
Aussie Helpers like to think that supporting the hard-working farmers is a privilege, although it can be challenging, it never stops being rewarding, seeing people smile again, it makes their job worthwhile and inspiring.
The charity is operated by volunteers working in Queensland, NSW, Victoria, South Australia and Tasmania. These volunteers fully embody the spirit of volunteering, freely giving their own time and expertise, they have created a charitable association that is strongly supported by local communities including citizens and small businesses, many of whom have donated and supplied goods and services to enable Aussie Helpers to achieve its goal of “helping to fight poverty in the bush”.
This bonding of ordinary people and the business community has created a feeling in the community of a profound sense of community spirit which has made it a priority to help others less fortunate and those who are going through tough times.
Aussie Helpers visits to farming families are not meant to solve any major problems however at times just knowing that someone cares about them and their difficult situation in the bush offers a little hope of better days ahead.
The beneficiaries of Aussie Helpers activities are genuine people who are going through really tough times. The majority of the people Aussie Helpers deal with would not ask for help nor expect it. Once these farmers get back on their feet the flow on will benefit the rural communities and country towns.
Aussie Helpers have proven beyond doubt that if people are fully committed to a worthwhile cause the local communities will embrace the organization that in turn instils a sense of pride, even if they are not a member of the organization, that people can relate to what is being achieved in their communities.
