Australian Motor Homes 2009 CMCA Charity Safari

HELP US HELP THE ROYAL FLYING DOCTOR SERVICE

 
On 3 March 2009, “He” & “She” are travelling in their motor home “Blue Snoopy” to the Midwestern NSW town of Parkes to join up with another 70+ motor homes and campervans to participate in the “Australian Motor Homes 2009 CMCA Charity Safari” (** see Note below). 

Whilst this event is not the same in magnitude as a “Variety Bash”, this is the ninth time this annual event has been held with the purpose of raising money for several charities including the Royal Flying Doctor Service which is the charity that “He” & “She” have chosen to support. 

 

Over the next 9 days, the participants in the rally are travelling to Swan Reach in South Australia via remote New South Wales, Victorian and South Australian towns.  Whilst the participants will support the towns that they stay in, they will also be looking for the residents and travellers that they meet on the way to help support the supported charities.

The towns chosen to stay at are Parkes, Lake Cargelligo, Rankin Springs, Ganmain, Coleambaly, Moulamein, Tooleybuc, Meringur and Swan Reach.

“Until we started to travel in the outback, we had no idea what the RFDS really was.   When we visited their base in Broken Hill, it quickly became evident that this was a very special organisation.  Until then, we had no idea that every outback Police Station and every outback property has a large medical chest that THEY have paid for that is fully stocked with drugs etc for the use of anyone who needs assistance.  The RFDS maintains a database of the contents of each of these chests and ensures that the chests are fully stocked and the medication is current.  As a traveller, there is a lot of comfort travelling on remote roads and noticing the remote air fields where an RFDS aircraft can land if required.

Why Help us support the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS)?

As a not for profit charitable organisation, the RFDS relies on the generosity of companies, the community and individuals to help them provide emergency and primary medical care to rural and remote Australia. Because it provides medical services free of charge, the RFDS must rely on the generosity of the community to continue the life-saving work.
Although the RFDS receives some government funding, donations from the community help to:

Your donation buys medical equipment to save lives, your donation buys aircraft to keep the RFDS flying.
The RFDS aircraft are among the safest in the world and fly more than 7 million kilometres in their lifetime! But after about 20 years of hard work, they need to be replaced. When you provide a national service that treats around 630 patients a day, you can’t afford to lose one plane from the fleet and not replace it.

• buy vital medical equipment
• purchase and outfit aircraft (at a cost of more than $8 million each)
• bring ‘Fly Around Clinics’ to the most isolated parts of the country
• develop primary health initiatives
• purchase a wide range of the latest medical equipment to continue providing the best aeromedical service in the world.  This equipment includes foetal heart monitors, ventilators and defibrillators to re-kick a failed heart 

Your donation will be directly used to help the thousands of people who live, work and travel in rural and remote Australia.

 
That is why we need your help with a donation to the Royal Flying Doctor Service, our chosen charity!

 

If you would like to make a donation, please send an email to bluesnoopy@bluesnoopy.com including your contact details and we will let you know how you can make a donation.  Alternatively, if you let us know what town you live in, we may be able to say hello during the safari.
