Drought fodder campaign takes offNeroli Roocke, Thursday June 20, 2013 - 14:37 EST
The people behind a campaign to collect fodder, fuel and funds for Queensland graziers in drought say it's 'going off', just four days after being launched.
Buy a Bale is a joint venture between Brian Egan's Aussie Helpers and the Give Back campaign, run by Charles Alder from Brisbane.
Mr Alder says more than $110,000 in cash and 40,000 bales of hay have already been pledged.
"We're rapt, it's almost like a drug. We're just on a high. Every day we wake up and more people have posted comments.
"We're getting farmers who are telling us they need help, so that's great to know that they can come to us."
The campaign's website is www.buyabale.com.au
