We’re beyond excited to share some incredible news with you!
We have wrapped up our limited edition campaign for this year and with your help, we’ve donated a whopping $50,000 to the Indigenous Literacy Foundation. This donation has helped the ILF acquire 5,000 culturally relevant books for children in remote Indigenous Communities. It’s the second year running we've teamed up with the ILF for a cause that's close to our hearts.
Freshwater Farm supporting Gotcha4Life
For every purchase of products from the Mandarin + Cedarwood Oil and Blue Cypress + Juniper Berry Oil ranges online at freshwaterfarm.com during September 2022, we donated 40% of sales to Gotcha4Life to support their mission to build mental fitness and reduce suicides in Australia. Every $40 raised means that another person around Australia can benefit from a Gotcha4Life Mental Fitness workshop.
Freshwater Farm presents $26,600 to the ILF
May 2022 saw the celebration of a hugely successful collaboration between Indigenous artist Brittney Paulson and Northern Beaches-based business Freshwater Farm. On a rainy Sydney day, the sunshine briefly appeared when CEO and Founder Al Hutcherson presented a cheque for $26,600 to Indigenous Literacy Foundation representative Laura Atherden, with the help of Brittney Paulson and Northern Beaches Council Mayor Michael Regan. This money will allow the charity to publish over 12,000 books for indigenous communities in Australia.
Donating money to the Bungwahl RFS
In the aftermath of the 2019 bushfires, Freshwater Farm donated a cheque for $2,500 to Bungwahl RFS to use the funds to buy a radio for their truck.
More than 560 Bales of Fodder donated to drought relief
February 2019 saw one of the harshest droughts that NSW has ever seen.
In the last six months of 2018, Rural Aid has distributed 48,000 bales of hay to more than 2500 farmers and has disbursed more than $20 million for fodder, mental health counselling and financial assistance.
While it’s getting desperate in many regions across the State, Mr Egan said there was fodder from the coastal fringes that were being donated. Including hundreds from Mayers Flat property owner, Allan Hutcherson.
“I heard Brian Egan from Aussie Helpers on the radio saying how they were buying fodder for drought affected farmers from all over Australia and transporting it to NSW and Queensland,” Al said.
