Dick Smith (of Dick Smith Foods) normally donates $1 Million every year, but this year Dick did the amazing and donated it all to our hard working charity. And for that, we thank you Dick.
As Brian says in this video – one Australian helping other Australians – it’s as simple as that! Well said Brian!

Dick said after visiting some farms this year he was shocked to see some properties without a blade of grass, so he set Dick Smith Foods up to support Aussie Farmers – and we are glad you did Dick!
Brian said some farmers live in circumstances worse than 3rd world conditions – these are our farmers he is talking about, our own Aussie farmers – Aussie Helpers is changing this, one family at a time.
You can help by donating too, CLICK HERE to help make a difference to these farmers, our farmers.

Remember, at Aussie Helpers we help farmers with food, stock, donations of all kinds and most importantly we actually get out in the properties, in private for a chat, to give them someone to talk to and help them keep going through the most horrendous dry spells which can annihilate a farm in just months… We try to keep them alive, and if we are lucky, we work with them to lift their spirits to avoid the tragedy that sometimes has eventuated when a farmer has felt they can’t go on anymore.

Dick said “I want people to say “wow Dick Smith donated $1 Million dollars to Aussie Helpers charity, it must be a good charity for Aussies, I’ll make a donation for Christmas too” ” – well said Dick!
Did you know that Dick donates all his profits from Dick Smith Foods to charity every year! Wow, we did not know that – and isn’t he the real deal on how we as Aussie should take better care of each other?
How many wealthy Aussies look after the rest of us like Dick does? Not enough we say.
