In view of the devastating and disastrous effect of the worst drought to hit regional Australia in the last 50 years, Rex has decided to set aside $1 million for drought relief to regional Australia. Assistance is offered in the form of up to $4.00 of travel on the network of for every $1.00 donated by the community groups to a registered charitable organization assisting in drought specific aid. Small businesses that are providing assistance to victims of the drought will also be eligible. The amount to be provided for each request is entirely at the discretion of the management of Rex.
Under the Drought Relief Assistance scheme, Rex invites community groups or small businesses (individuals are not eligible) who have raised funds or contributed for the drought relief efforts to apply for a travel voucher worth up to $4.00 for every $1.00 raised/contributed. The travel voucher must be used for purposes related to drought relief.
