RE/MAX SUCCESS THROWS LIFELINE TO FARMERS
Real estate agents and landlords give generously to help with local farmers’ bills.
RE/MAX Success is helping make life a little easier for farmers across the Darling Downs and South West Queensland through teaming up with Lifeline Darling Downs.
Each real estate agent on the RE/MAX Success team is donating $50 for each of their sales contracts that settle during September, October and November; and the office also invited its Landlords to participate, giving $1 per month for each of their properties managed by RE/MAX Success during the 3 months of the appeal.
“Our Landlords have been very generous, with donations upped to $5, $10, $50 and even $100 per month,” said RE/MAX Success Broker/Owner, Katie Knight, “and through our Landlords, more than $900 was raised for September alone.”
Ms Knight announced that, in total, more than $2,100 had been raised just one month into the appeal.
“We partnered with Lifeline Darling Downs and South West QLD Ltd in order to support our local farmers who’ve not received significant rainfall for more than 7 years.
“With our assistance, and the help of others, Lifeline is able to provide financial support to severely drought affected farmers and their families.
“The dollars we are raising through September, October and November will help contribute to mortgages, livestock feed, crop management and other critical household expenses.
“Collectively, we’re excited to make a real difference to the lives of rural families in our community,” said Ms Knight.
