Children of the Gold Coast- Charity Book

Would you like to be involved in something amazing? Something life changing?

Help us change the lives of our Aussie Farmers, simply by having your child photographed by an award-winning photographer and featured in a beautiful fine art book?

This month we’ll be creating a fine art book called “Children of the Gold Coast” to help raise money for Drought Angels.

The impact of the drought as it enters it’s sixth year is almost impossible to fathom or describe. Farmers everywhere are facing desperate times with 100% of NSW and 60% QLD now drought declared. Stock blood lines that have in some cases taken generations to breed are being lost, farmers are left with no choice but to walk off their properties under the crippling strain of debt.

The sheer volume of calls for help from farmers is at a record high and they need our help!

Every dollar raised helps keep our Aussie Farmers on the land, supports their families and the community’s wellbeing.

Our overall goal is to raise $5000 for charity by photographing 50 fine art portraits of children and publishing these in a beautiful hard cover book.
