One Bucket is a volunteered drought awareness campaign that aims to educate and inform urban communities about the harsh reality of drought and the impacts drought has on our rural communities and our nation as a whole.
Through sharing personal stories and faces of the drought, One Bucket aims to connect people of the city with folks of the bush and generate moral support and financial assistance for the people who are really doing it tough.
Support can be shown through sharing the stories on social media, organising a fundraising event or donating directly to the www.onebucket.com.au page. All proceeds go directly to charities Rural Aid who focus on Mental Health and fodder through the Buy a Bale campaign and Drought Angels, who are two women who support farmers with food hampers, personalised visits and financial support through the distribution of prepaid visa cards to help with
mounting farm bills.
Edwina Robertson is the wedding photographer behind the One Bucket idea. With nearly five years of weddings under her belt she is slowly adding the next biggest passion to her portfolio, being a positive voice for the bush.
“I desire to invest as much energy and time as possible to bring awareness about real issues people of the bush face without sugar coating reality. Rural and remote Australia can be tough and unpretty and I believe many Australians have lost the connection and understanding that they once had with the bush,” said Edwina.
