Help with a Bequest

Thank you so much for your kind consideration of leaving a gift to Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids in your Will.  As we are non-government funded we rely on the generosity of people like you to continue our work.  We are very grateful that you may be considering leaving a lasting legacy to allow us to continue to bring joy, hope and love to families and children doing it tough in the bush.

Founded in 2019, Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids has grown from humble beginnings of a Go Fund Me Page to a respected and hard working children’s charity. On a road trip from Townsville to Dubbo Jason and Becy were horrified at the devastation of the land and the dead and dying livestock and wildlife.  It was a chance encounter with a droving family that they decided that they needed to do something to help the farmers and rural communities out during the horrific drought.

Every dollar makes a huge difference and we are so grateful for your consideration of leaving a gift to ensure that we are able to continue reaching families and kids doing it tough

To leave a legacy in your Will, please follow these 3 simple steps -

1 – Speak to your family and loved ones and let them know your wishes.

2 – Once your decision has been made with your loved one’s blessing– decide on the type of donation that you would like to leave to Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids.

3 – Making / Updating your Will - we recommend that you seek independent legal advice to ensure that your Will is valid and represents your wishes. Please print up the Bequest Pledge Form and take with you to your Solicitor.

Following the success of their 'Doin for Rural Aussie Kids' Christmas Drive and 'Back to School Appeal', celebrated country music singer Jason Owen and his wife Becy have established a charity to offer continued support to rural communities that often experience long periods of extreme weather, isolation and lack of support.

‘Doin It for Rural Aussie Kids’ are on the ground helping the next generation in rural communities throughout Australia. Donations and ongoing fundraising efforts are aimed to help these communities when they experience the harshness of the Australian country.

Working with corporate partners and with your generous donations we support rural schools, holding motivational talks and help with Christmas presents for struggling families.

the stories behind the donations

Assisting rural schools and students

Jason and his Mum Pattie hit the roads on 28th November through to 15th December 2022, covering over 10000km and meeting over 1000 Rural Aussie Kids. Even though hampered by flooding Jason and Pattie were able to successfully get to every school - except one. The flooding around Bourke NSW meant that they had to backtrack and travel hundreds of kms out of their way to get to Queensland - and that was their first day. We are very grateful to all the schools that welcomed Jason and Pattie into their schools. This year was the first year to enter the Northern Territory and Jason and Pattie were thrilled to be welcomed into Tennant Creek, Mungkarta and Yulara Schools. Such an amazing journey and adventure through the isolated outback of Australia.

During 2019, 2020 and 2021 Doin It For Rural Aussie Kids has been privileged to visit or assist multiple small rural schools, and have touched the lives of over 1600 children in regional NSW, Queensland, South Australia and Victoria.

In December 2020 Jason and his Mum Pattie set off on a mammoth 8000km road trip over 10 days visiting over 20 schools in 4 states, kicking off with a visit to Wongarbon School in central NSW. With every child in every school receiving a Christmas Gift and Jason giving a motivational chat about following your dreams and no dream is too big to achieve. Jason also sang his newly released Christmas Song - So this is Christmas with the children and was surprised and delighted with the children joining in.
