Sadly, the drought crisis isnít over. What do you have planned next to help our farmers?
I think itís just to get the resources out to them as quick as we can and to keep spreading the message. My mum says to just keep using my small but mighty voice. People are really listening. I still canít believe it to be honest.
How do you fit all your fundraising efforts around school?
Most of the interviews are before and after school. But most of all I have had so many people help. Mum and her friends have called themselves the Drought Awareness Warriors. They are the ones replying to emails and answering the calls. Itís been really busy!
Have you been to see the effects of the drought first hand or meet any of the farmers youíre helping?
Yes, I have been to see some farmers and farms. When this all started I hadnít really been on a farm, so Sunrise took me to a really cool farm in Molong. I got to meet the Munro family. I have had some farmers call me and say thank you for everything Iím doing. But really, Iím the one thatís happy to talk to them.
What do you say to other kids who think theyíre too young to make a difference?
I say that age is just a number and if you put your mind to it you can do anything. If anyone judges you, itís best to ignore them.
How and where can our readers go to contribute to the cause?
I have a website A Fiver For a Farmer and we are also on Facebook and Instagram and always update it with cool stuff.
