Drought Angels all smiles at their 2019 calendar launch

Chinchilla's Drought Angels are proving the power of pictures with the official launch of their 2019 calendar.

Since it's formation in January 2014, the not-for-profit charity has sought to offer a helping hand to the rural families of Australia affected by natural disasters.

They are one of many volunteer groups showing farmers dealing with the drought that they are not alone.

All proceeds made from calendar purchases will go towards Drought Angels' operational costs

Last night, they gathered at the Club Hotel in celebration, to thank the Chinchilla community for their continuing support.

"Because of the support we have been able to raise close to $4 million dollars in the past 8 weeks,” Drought Angels co-founder Tash Johnston said in her address to the small crowd.

"We couldn't be more thankful.”

Chinchilla News was there to capture the faces of those bringing smiles to others.

Calendar purchases and donations for the cause can be made through the Drought Angels website.
