Adopt a Sheep to Beat the Drought

Hey there,

I love it, a farmer has decided to use a smart form of marketing to help save their sheep! I first heard about it on the news so went to their website to learn more. And it is all so easy – you simply adopt a sheep for $35 for 100 days to provide hand feed through the hot dry summer until the rains have a chance to come back.

We all talk about how tough it is for our farmers and feel rather useless for doing anything to help so this is a great way to do something useful and productive – yes, us city people are being given the chance to help so that’s great in itself.

My mum is a spinner, weaver and knitter so I can’t not adopt a sheep of the Kiely family of Uamby. So click here to check out their Adopt a Sheep blog! I’ll give mum the adoption certificate for Christmas so all I have to do is figure out a name for the wool creature!

    What a great idea! I saw the adopt a sheep on the news last night too – it looks like it is working. What a great way to bring the city and country together.

    I saw this too and thought it was really clever and smart what with the drought and all the costs of hand feeding stock and doing it all. Does anyone know how well they went with it?
