Australia’s design community rallies to help farmers suffering from drought

Zenith produces a mega clearance initiative to assist Aussie Helpers – a charity ensuring wellbeing and survival for communities affected by rural drought.

To date, deficiencies in rainfall through parts of central Australia and far north Queensland continue to desolate our agricultural and livestock industries – not to mention the thousands of communities that rely on these sectors.

Of course, extreme weather conditions are nothing new to the Australian way of life. But with climate change continuing to wreak havoc across our landscape and society, the escalating damage potential has prompted many to extend a helping hand to those most directly affected: our farming community.

One such organisation – Aussie Helpers – has been tireless in this effort. Working on the grassroots level with hundreds of farming families to ensure their wellbeing and survival through times both good and bad, Aussie Helpers co-ordinates drought relief, fundraising and vital support services for those people in their time of need.

Joining these unsung heroes trying to save our farmers from loss and heartache, Zenith is giving back to the farming community that sustains so much of the Australian lifestyle. Recognising that organisations such as Aussie Helpers need our sustained support and assistance, Zenith is hosting a nation-wide clearance sale on Saturday 8 September, with 100 per cent of proceeds being donated to Aussie Helpers’ initiatives across the country.

Held in Zenith‘s warehouse in Melbourne and Sydney and showrooms in Canberra, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide, the Zenith Drought Relief Warehouse Sale represents a concerted effort to make a very material difference to our wider community. In Zenith‘s own words, “we are joining Aussie Helpers to contribute to their core goals of delivering ‘care, share and respect’ to those in need. We recognise the enormous contribution of the farming community in Australia and, as such, we want to give back to those individuals who are adversely affected by the devastating effects of drought and climate change throughout the country.”
