Merry Christmas From Our Team

This year, we’re celebrating Christmas a little differently at ratio: As 2019 draws to a close we’ve been reflecting on how it’s been a big year in more ways than one. When our team got together to throw some ideas around for Christmas gifts, there was one that really struck a chord with us.

Parts of Australia are experiencing the worst drought in recorded history and we’ve recently seen devastating fires sweep across our country. The daily news is filled with images of destruction. We see many opportunities to help those who are having a tough time.

Across Australia there are thousands of farmers who need our help to keep their stock alive. We asked ourselves, what could we do, in a really tangible way, to help some of those suffering true hardship?

So, we’ve donated a truckload of hay
to the ‘Buy a Bale’ initiative run by Rural Aid,
in lieu of corporate gifts.

The Buy a Bale campaign provides meaningful support for Aussie farmers and rural communities by delivering hay and other essential items to farmers who have no feed left for their stock. The hay we’ve donated will help feed a farmer’s livestock whilst feed is low during times of drought. This means that families can continue to make a living from their stock and spend money on other critical items.
