Art For Bales - 19 - 20 October 2019
Buy Art to Help a Farmer
Art for Bales 2019 is an artist run Instagram campaign raising awareness of the impact of Australia’s drought crisis.
On the weekend of 19-20 October everyone had the opportunity to buy art to help a farmer.
Artists like me donated artwork to be sold over the weekend of 19-20 October 2019. All proceeds from the sale of each artwork went directly to @ruralaid to assist a farmer or farming community.
This year they raised a whomping $80,000 in much needed funding. this amount of money will go towards various needed items. But just to give you an idea of what it buys $80,000 can buy 8.4 semi-trailers of hay for animals or it could buy 1,600 phone counselling sessions to rural farmers or their family members.
Over 100 talented artists were involved.
I donated 3 paintings. All of which were sold by 7.30am on Saturday 19th October.
Thank you so much for being attuned to this. Thank you also to my buyers for their donations. You have helped a very worthy cause.
