Updated: Karl Stefanovic, said: “What a privilege to spend the day with farmers and their families. To hear their stories and to see their struggle has been so humbling. This was an incredible event to be a part of and the response from people right across Australia was awesome. I want to thank every single person who gave their hard earned dollars to help our farmers. And I want our farmers to know our coverage of this crisis will continue.”
