It has come to our attention that an email was sent out yesterday from an email address associated with Landcare NSW, firstname.lastname@example.org, which appeared to be on behalf of Landcare NSW.
The email had the subject line: WIN $500K or a $150K Luxury Car.
Landcare NSW would like to confirm that this is not a Landcare NSW initiative.
We have since learned that an individual volunteer set up a personal fundraising page through Play for Purpose to raise money for Drought Relief in NSW. It is a legitimate raffle however Landcare NSW is not involved with the messaging or coordination of the raffle.
A request has been sent to remove the Landcare NSW name and details from the raffle to avoid further confusion.
For people who would like to give to drought relief, Landcare NSW supports not-for-profit GIVIT, as the NSW Government’s official partner to manage offers of assistance for farmers, their families and rural communities experiencing hardship due to the current drought.
By working with hundreds of local charities, schools and community service providers, GIVIT will connect those who need help with those willing to give.
