THE GREEN SHIRTS MOVEMENT

VOLUNTEER

Help us make a difference...every bit of help can make a positive impact!

Thank you for expressing an interest in becoming a volunteer with us.

The Green Shirts Movement is a grassroots, not for profit, movement of individuals and families across our nation, who hold a collective concern about the increasing divide between food and fibre consumers, and primary producers and associated industries.

We are only here due to volunteers. If we are to succeed in standing up for and supporting regional Australia, and protecting agricultural jobs in the cities too, then we need your help.

Please don’t feel you have nothing to offer, everyone does.

We would appreciate if you take the time to read the list below and if you can help in any capacity it would be very much appreciated.

Which Electoral Division do you vote in?
Look up my Electoral Divisions here. Please enter your State and Federal electorates below. This helps GSM organise our volunteers into their regions.

We are a grassroots, not for profit, movement of individuals and families across our nation, that hold a collective concern about the increasing divide between food and fibre consumers, and primary producers and associated industries.

If we don’t produce it, someone else will, and we can assure you, it won’t be to the standard we have set ourselves.

Get involved in our movement!

It’s time to make a difference. You can help as little or as much as you like. Every little bit counts.

DONATION DISCLAIMER

Green Shirts Movement Australia (GSM) is a not-for-profit organisation campaigning to ensure that the grassroots Australia is represented and governed by good people and good policy.

GSM is not a deductible gift recipient (DGR) organisation or fund that registers to receive tax deductible gifts, nor is it a registered political party under State or Federal legislation. Therefore, contributions are not deductible for income tax purposes.

To help us continue to be the voice for rural, regional and reasonable people we raise money through donations help pay for things like advertising, billboards, print advertisements and representing your voice to governments at all levels.

We are NOT apolitical – we are very political – however we are NOT party aligned. We expect and will support GOOD PEOPLE and GOOD POLICY, no matter from whence we find it. We will not blindly attach ourselves to any political party. We expect parties to put themselves SECOND to the welfare of the people they purport to represent. We are driven by you. As political parties are abandoning the grassroots, we will fill that void. We will give our all to ensure policy is driven from the grassroots up, and not inflicted on us from those that feel they are our betters.

Your donation makes our movement stronger and strengthen your voice.

The AEC will publish these reports on its website.
