The North West NSW community of Coonamble is banding together to raise the spirits of their drought-stricken community.
“We’re having a Rain Dance on the 6th of October - a chance to forget about the drought for a night, catch up with friends and neighbours and wash the bulldust out of our throats. And most importantly let's dance up a storm to some great live music and break this drought!” explains chief organiser James Nalder.
The organising committee is seeking donations from anyone who wants to help to make this Rain Dance a reality. In drought times, the first thing to drop from the household budget is social events. Yet these are so important for mental health - an opportunity to check on each other and see if we're all okay. Donations to this event will keep ticket prices down, enabling cash-strapped locals to attend. A social occasion such as this, with friends and neighbours, can be just as valuable a form of drought relief as a bale of hay! $50 will sponsor one ticket, but any donation amount will be gratefully accepted and please leave Coonamble a message of support with your donation. Bigger corporate sponsors are encouraged to contact the committee directly at coonambleraindance@mail.com

We have been completely overwhelmed by the support shown for our Coonamble RainDance event. In just a month, the generous people of Australia have donated $20 000 to make our dream a reality. 900 tickets have been issued to the Raindance Ball on 6th October, and we're getting ready to dance up a storm. In the last month we've only received 17.8mm of rain, in several small falls, so hopefully the Rain continues to fall! Our crowdfunding page will now shut down, but if anyone wants to contribute further to the Coonamble community's drought relief efforts, please email us at coonambleraindance@mail.com and we will point you in the right direction. Thanks raindancers! Keep following us on facebook for all updates!
