Daisy Pool Covers backs Smart WaterMark’s Buy a Bale drought relief initiative

Daisy Pool Covers backs Smart WaterMark’s Buy a Bale drought relief initiative
October 5, 2018

With many parts of Australia enduring drought conditions and the upcoming National Water Week aiming to promote water efficiency, Daisy Pool Covers has pledged up to $5,000 to match donations made to Smart Approved Watermark's fund for the ‘Buy a Bale’ drought relief initiative.

Smart WaterMark’s backing for RuralAid’s ‘Buy a Bale’ fundraising campaign aims to support rural communities affected by drought.

Emphasising his company’s commitment, Derek Prince, Managing Director of Daisy Pool Covers explains “this is such a tough time for our farmers and rural communities and we are excited to partner with Smart Approved Watermark and RuralAid on bringing much needed supplies to these areas in their time of need.

“We are encouraging all Australians - wherever they live - to donate $20 or more to the campaign so that together we can get water and hay to Aussie farmers in peril.

“We will match whatever donations are received by Smart Approved Watermark - up to $5,000 - that’s 230,000 litres of water being delivered to farmers in need or nearly 1 full semi-trailer of hay.

“If we reach this target, that would mean together we’d get to deliver 460,000 litres of water or nearly two semi-trailers of hay.”

Any donations over $2 are tax deductible while to show our appreciation for donations of $20 or more, Smart WaterMark will post one of its educational water story books to the donor to share with friends and family.

Smart WaterMark’s backing for National Water Week - which runs from 21st to 27th October - has also seen the water efficiency advisory body coordinate generous donations from Terracottem, Hoselink and Hunter Industries to create a prize pool of almost $5000 to reward entrants in a schools’ water efficiency competition.

Coordinated by the Australian Water Association, National Water Week runs from 21st to 27th October with the theme ‘Water for me, Water for all’.
