By the end of 2018, Qan­tas and its pas­sen­gers will have do­nated $3 mil­lion to Ru­ral Aid, a char­ity that pro­vides much-needed sup­port to coun­try Aus­tralia. The funds will go di­rectly to drought-af­fected farming com­mu­ni­ties to help with ev­ery­day ex­penses – wa­ter de­liv­er­ies, hay bales, gro­ceries and men­tal health sup­port. You can help by tak­ing one of Qan­tas’s two spe­cial fundrais­ing flights. All pro­ceeds from ticket sales will go to Ru­ral Aid.
