Dollar Day Drought Relief

Monday, March 10, 2014

On Friday the 7th of March Tamworth’s major FM Radio Station 92.9 (http://fm929.net/) held a fundraiser – “Dollar Day Drought Relief” - where all proceeds generated went towards the local farmers and their families struggling in the prolonged drought currently experienced in the area.

In short, for the “Dollar Day” campaign 92.9 were asking everyone in Tamworth to donate just 1 dollar to the initiative. In keeping with the "dollar" theme, Steve Mccarthy, owner of Cafe2U Tamworth, NSW pledged that on Friday, his busiest day by far, he would donate a dollar from every coffee sold to this outstanding initiative.

Pictured below is Steve from Cafe2U Tamworth, NSW handing cash to the value of $342 to Lisa Ashcroft, the General Manager 92.9 FM. 

This total raised was as a result of the combined efforts of a $1 donation for every cup of coffee sold by Steve, a $100 donation from one Steve’s customers and several small donations from others.

Steve who services 92.9 FM Radio on a regular basis was listening to the station on Friday morning as they were interviewing some of the affected farmers. “What these people are going through is heartbreaking.Some are in dire situations, whilst some have even taken or attempted to take their own lives. Such is the helplessness.” states Steve, who was only too happy to be a part of raising funds for this great caused for those affected  in his local community. After all, every dollar counts!
