The Story of Jack Berne & A Fiver for a Farmer



 Our farmers need us more than ever! Just because you aren't seeing it as much in the media doesn't mean the drought has ended. With Greater Sydney recently joining in on the Water restrictions, it shows us more than ever that now is the time to act. So Jack and the Drought Awareness Warriors are set for 2019 to be bigger and better than ever before. But we need your help!
So how can you help?

  • Use your small but mighty voice - Yes! In the words or Jack "You might be small but your voice is mighty!" So use it - ask your school, dance group, business place, local coffee shop etc to get involved. 
  • Register via our Get Involved link 
  • Share our content on Social media
  • Buy Australia produce, check your labels of the products you currently buy and look for the Australian alternative


Updates from the fiver team!

#AFFAF Challenge 2019

We have a challenge for you! We are always asked ”how else can we help our Australian Farmers?!”

So today Jack was speaking with Tash from Drought Angels who suggested that we can help our farmers by buying Australian made produce. So the challenge was set!

It wasn't as easy as you'd think. So are you ready to give it a go? When completing your next grocery shop we challenge you to buy as much Australian grown and made products as possible. Then we would love for you to share it with us! Using the hashtag #affafchallengeOur Australian farmers deserve our support!

Update from Jack!

Our Mates Lewis Holland & Charlotte Caslick have created the most amazing initiative to help rebuild the fences destroyed by the recent floods. 

Over 8000km of fencing has been destroyed. Visit to donate to a worthy cause.

The drought is far from over. The media might not be sharing stories as much as they did last year but our Farmers need our love, support and donations more than ever. 

We are back for 2019


Australia, we've got a problem!

Following record dry conditions, Farmers in rural Australia are in dire straights. As costs spiral and conditions worsen, even putting food on the table is  becoming too hard for some families. 

Let's band together and show them we care because if we don't help them, who will? It's all of our future. 


How do you get involved?

Join the movement! After the huge success of 2018 A fiver for a Farmer Day. We are back! Join us on August 2nd, raise awareness through dressing as a Farmer, Donate five dollars, pack a lunch consisting of Australia Produce, so check your labels and buy in season!


Hi. My name is Jack Berne. I am ten years old and I am in Year 4 at St John the Baptist Primary School at Freshwater. 

We have been learning about the drought and the Farmers and I heard that there are kids that are skipping school to help out on their farms. Kids that are our age!

My school mates and I want to fundraise for the Farmers - "A fiver for a Farmer" - but we need your help!

Here is the idea. We are going to get dressed up as farmers and bring in a fiver to raise awareness and funds. If we can raise some money, I think we can all feel better about helping our mates on the farms!
