WOOLWORTHS AND COLES PLEASE KEEP DONATING FOR FARMERS AVAILABLE AT CHECKOUTS!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


Don’t our farming families deserve Christmas too???
The drought is far from over, and the forecast by the Bureau of Meteorology is for a dry next 3 months (see below).
Yet when I went to add something for drought relief at the supermarket-checkout, I was told that people can no longer donate at either Woolworths or Coles! That Coles and Woolworths have stopped allowing people to donate to our farmers through them. Yet how can it hurt Woolworths or Coles to allow people to keep donating through them? And this is right on Christmas!
SO I AM ASKING COLES AND WOOLWORTHS TO CONTINUE TO ALLOW US TO DONATE TO OUR FARMERS THROUGH THEM, TILL AT LEAST THE NEW YEAR. SO PLEASE CLICK (AND DONATE TO THIS CAMPAIGN) IF YOU AGREE!
My commitment to myself is that every time I do my grocery shopping, I add $2 for Drought Relief/Buy a Bale (of some kind), at the checkout of the supermarket. If every Australian (24,772,247 people) does this each time they shop, then that would raise $49,544,494 for our farmers! (And IGA, please come on board! I have not been able to donate through you at all in Townsville.)
Below is the latest broadcast from the Bureau of Meteorology and it’s not looking good!
Climate outlook for November 2018 to January 2019 
Published Date: 25 Oct 2018
Summary
The Bureau of Meteorology has released the climate forecast for November 2018 to January 2019.
Climate outlook overview
Direct link to the Bureau Climate update
·      The November to January climate outlook, issued 25 October 2018, indicates large parts of Australia are likely to be drier than average.
·      November, in particular, is likely to be drier than average in many areas. However, areas to the east of the Great Dividing Range show no strong indication of either a wetter or drier month.
·      November to January days are very likely to be warmer than average for most of Australia. Nights are also likely to be warmer than average, except for areas surrounding the Great Australian Bight.
·      A drier and warmer than average three months would mean a low chance of recovery for drought-affected areas of eastern Australia.
