Safeway Drought Action Day

After a successful action day last year, Safeway is again running Woolworths Drought Action Day. All profits from Safeway and Woolworths across the country today will be donated to the Country Women’s Association. The Country Women’s Association is working to help farmers suffering from the drought. Even though we have heard little about the drought recently, it is still a serious and desperate situation. Water catchments are at 36.5% (the same amount as last year) and dipping.

All you have to do is shop at Safeway today. Can’t be any easier.

    Oh, thats so crazy! Safeway are *notorious* for ripping farmers off and paying them far less than they need for produce.

    Maybe they should help farmers through the drought by completely changing their business practises, forever… i think that’d go down better than a single annual day of charity.

    Though it is good that they’re doing anything at all, it makes you wonder if they’re just trying to paint themselves as "friends of the farmers" to us city-slickers…
