Farm Aid urgently needs your help.
Record-setting drought is devastating farms in the High Plains, South and Southwest. For two months, the region has endured 100-degree heat and little or no rain. Farmers and ranchers are struggling to feed their livestock, pastures and crops are decimated and hay is nearly impossible to come by.
Without help, farmers will have to make the painful choice to sell off their livestock and give up on the hard work they’ve put in to build their farms and livelihoods.
When major disasters strike, farmers in need call Farm Aid. Farm Aid has already taken action, and last week the first truckloads of hay donated by Wisconsin farmers arrived to help drought-stricken farmers in Oklahoma.
Farm Aid has a long history of helping farm families survive disasters. We’ve had experience organizing haylifts like this one — but we need your donation right now to do more. Can you help by making a tax-deductible donation of $25, $100, $500 or $1,000?
Farmers are generously donating hay, but it’s going to take your help to deliver that hay to where it’s needed most. Your donation to Farm Aid right now will provide support for the haylifts, making that connection between farmers in need and farmers willing to lend a hand to help their fellow farmers.
Please make a contribution to Farm Aid’s Family Farm Disaster Fund right now and we will put that money to good work, helping family farms and ranches by feeding their hungry animals. Thank you for your generosity.
Stay Strong and Positive,
