RDO EVENTS (Rural Day Off)
We make people feel special and appreciated.
We encourage companies to sponsor these days and to be a part of this incredible experience. Drought Angels selects a community that has been identified through clusters of applications and conversations with community members. We bring together our farmers, their neighbours and for a day, they can forget about their struggles.
These days are coordinated by Drought Angels and we endeavour to source the vast majority of suppliers from the local community (eg hairdressers, massage therapists, entertainment etc). We provide morning tea, lunch and an evening meal.
Our families can relax and let their barriers down as we serve them throughout the day with smiles and a listening ear. They also do not go home empty handed. Our rural goody bags contain grocery hampers, care packs and pre-paid visa cards for each family who attends. The value of the visa cards depends on the donations received in the lead up to the day. Our target is a minimum of $1000 for each family.
Our RDO’s cost approximately $70,000-90,000 per day, depending on numbers – a significant investment to deliver outstanding and genuinely appreciated results.
This Drought is an enormous challenge for our farmers and their towns, but we are committed to help them get through it!!
Feeback from our RDO’s
“ I didn’t know just how much I needed this”
“I forgot how we used to celebrate and get together”
“How awesome is this old hall, we really should do more events like this”
“My mental health was pretty poor, This is the best I have felt in a long time. As Long as I can remember!”
Huge thank you to Drought Angels for the event which I thought was “just so wonderful!”. I enjoyed my haircut, massage and the opportunity to socialise with others you really made day.
