  ▪ Talk!! Talk!!
1. How does your country's government deal with droughts?
2. What are other struggles that farmers also have to face?
3. Are you familiar with farm work?
4. What can you do to help farmers who are struggling?
5. How do you start a "gofundme " page?
 


 

THIS 10-year-old is proof you can make a difference. Jack Berne set a goal of raising $20,000 to help farmers struggling through Australia’s worst drought crisis in centuries.  
 

He hit his target in an impressive 48 hours. More than $60,000 has been raised for drought-stricken farmers through a campaign started by children at a Sydney school.

Jack Berne, a grade four student at St John the Baptist Catholic School in Freshwater, was the instigator of “a fiver for a farmer”, and was inspired to help after learning about the struggles of those on the land in class.

 

Jack wrote a letter to media outlets as he tried to generate support for the cause after telling his mum that their teacher always tells them, “we can use our small and mighty voices”. The 10-year-old wrote: “I heard that there are kids that are skipping school to help out on their farms. Kids that are our age!”

“My school mates and I want to fundraise for the Farmers – “A fiver for a Farmer” – but we need your help!”

Within 12 hours a gofundme page and a website had started for “a fiver for a farmer”.

 

“We can all spare five dollars – some of us more – so collect that small change and help us make a big difference,” the *gofundmepage (바로가기)  reads.

While $5 might seem like a fairly small amount, the school community at St John the Baptist Catholic School know they can make an impact.

One person wrote on the fundraising page: “I think it’s so important that city kids understand what the country kids on drought stricken farms are going through,”

“I’ve grown up and spent my life living on the land, and it makes me proud to see you doing something so generous to help rural communities so heavily affected by the drought. “
